I've been making Optical Lens Pendants for many, many years and have acquired several sets of vintage trial lens during the course of my art-making. Truth be told, I have way more optical lens than I'll ever use, so I've decided to offer a few of them for sale. Each lens is 1.5 inches in diameter and 2 inches tall including the tab. Most lens have small markings on each side of the lens (for optometrist use, I suppose) & most have frosted edges. (If you look closely in the last picture, my sample pendant, you'll see what I mean.)

These are vintage lens, and, as such, the condition of the lenses vary -- if you'd prefer a more rusty and "old-looking" pendant, please let me know. Most have little to no rusting on them. All could use a good cleaning before using for your art making, as they have been in storage for over a year. There are three different tabs available (plus, minus, and blank). Additionally, most have a number on the top which indicates the lens' strength. You'll get a random selection, but if you'd like a specific tab or number, I will do my best to get that to you -- however, I am unable to make any promises since I have these packaged in groups of ten from my last studio move, so what you'll get will depend on what's in each package as I open them.

These are perfect for mixed media and altered art, assembage projects and altered books, and steampunk jewelry.

This listing is for: two (2) vintage optical lenses.

The last image shows a pendant that I made with one of these lens. For the lens that don't have a "plus" sign on the top, wire wrapping works very well for turning the lens into a pendant.
