Chandelier Repair make replacement bobeche for antique chandelier restoration

The crystal  bobeche was broken during a move.  Dad  tried to find all the piece but an up short.  Gluing the remains showed a large piece was missing.  I decided that I would make a replacement bobeche.  Filling the hole left by the missing pieces was an option but not a good one
