24 Religious Spiritual & Esoteric Stanhope Lens Microphoto Peep Viewer collection - Ready to Install

This is a collection of loose stanhope lenses made by Stanhope Jewelry artisans for use in pendants, charms, trinkets, pens, jewelry, pocketknives and a number of other craft, hobby, keepsake, custom made, and handmade items. Stanhopes add that extra wow factor to anything you make. Stanhopes increase the value and desirability of any crafty creation. Your imagination and a stanhope are all you need to increase sales in competitive markets.

They can be installed easily in nearly anything you make. The easiest and most common method is to simply adhere the stanhope lens in a tube or hole drilled in the item. Each one is handmade so the diameter may vary just slightly from lens to lens.

This stanhope lenses are 2.7mm - 2.9mm in diameter and the length is about 7mm. It will install easily in any proper size hole (about 2.7-2.9mm) or tube with an ordinary non-shrinking glue or adhesive. There are other ways to install them such as bezel setting or wrapping, It is best to have a thickness of 7+mm to protect the lens from damage, but this is not required. The Lord's Prayer image are very clear and of a much higher quality than those found in the vintage and antique stanhope prayer crosses and other religious pendants and charms.
These stanhopes are a great choice as a replacement for a missing or damaged cross, bible pendant, praying hands charm or other religious theme stanhope item.

-A group of stanhope lenses on a penny for size perspective.
-The actual view of the Lords Prayer as seen through the lens when held closely to the eye.

More about our Stanhopes.

What is a stanhope?
Stanhopes are tiny viewers that were extremely popular in the late 1800's. When you hold a Stanhope viewer to your eye you can see a tiny black and white image that is very clear and appears as if it's floating freely in space. The actual photo is often less than 1mm in size and it's magnified 160x showing great photographic detail.These were very popular in novelties, jewelry, souvenirs and other items. One extinct and no longer produced, Stanhope MicroWorks & Stanhope Jewelry Company are the only makers of true stanhopes worldwide today. Our customers include, SPY (The international Spy Museum), Hallmark Cards, QVC (England), Help for our Heros, many fashion and accessory designers and artists.
