I purchased the antique brass base and matching glass disc from the etsy shop Newbora. I got 10 of the 10mm base (approx 1/2 in) and 10 of the matching 10 mm glass for $10. They by far had the cheapest price but it ships from China so it did take a little while to get to me. So if you order don’t be in a hurry to get them! There are multiple sizes and styles available including earrings! The quality is great though and worth the wait!
For the letter, I used a “J” from the title of vintage piece of sheet music. You could use just about anything, an old picture, a word from a book or dictionary. So technically this counts as recycling in that way as well.
I used my Loctite Crafter’s Glue, which so far has been permanent and dries crystal clear. The best part is it takes about 24 hours to solidly cure, so you can adjust it. I cut out a rectangular piece larger than the glass disc and put a dab of glue on it and placed it over the letter. As the glue cures it gets clearer and clearer but you can still move it to make sure the letter is centered.
