Daniel,

CA works ok, but for the clear lenses I tend to use GS-HYPO Watch crystal cement. It is a non-clouding formula and retains some malleability for mistakes, plus it is a whole lot easier to clean up should it end up in the wrong spot. It's used in the jewerley industry to affix watch crystals and other jewels in those ornate arrangements.

Here's a link to buy some:

I used a thickened CA for the wire handrails and wire piping details. I took my time and beveled the lenses so that they fit snuggly into the fixtures so that the lens is pretty much flush with the rim. I used a couple small dabs of CA off of a toothpick and placed them into their respective fixtures with no issues of fogging. Many two part epoxy resins are not a true clear when mixed and usually harden with a slight amber tint.
