How-to: Make an Upcycled Magnifying Glass Necklace

burnish copper foil tape around the perimeter of the glass lensStick the adhesive copper foil around the entire perimeter of the glass lens, allowing the tape to very slightly overlap the front and back sides of the lens. Using a tool or just your fingernail while pressing hard, burnish the copper foil tape very well across its entire surface, crimping the foil neatly at edges and corners. The solder will stick to the foil, which sticks to the glass, so making sure that the copper foil is stuck to the glass perfectly is critical.

Place the lens into your clamp and make sure that it’s sturdy enough to allow you to work hands-free on it without knocking everything over.
