I made these 2 charms from vintage screw-back earrings. I removed the hardware from the backs and attached a bail to each piece with 2 part epoxy resin. The resin I use is 7 on the MOHS hardness scale. It dries as hard as quartz without being brittle.
The center stones in these look aqua in the light but they look more like royal blue normally.
These charms are ready to serve for 100 years or more with care.
