Wish Bottle Charm

Wish Bottle
In amongst all the lovely treasure I received for Carly (see below) there were several little corked bottles.

I’ve wanted to make some bottle charm pendants for ages and couldn’t believe it when I saw that Claire’s Accessories are selling them at the moment, a bit plainer than this, but I am on the right track.
 Wish Bottle 1
What I have shown today  is still very much at the experimental stage! 
Wish Bottle 2
I made a little scroll with “wish” written on it, before putting it in the bottle with some small gold stars. I have then used Ranger Glossy Accents to stick on some Suze Weinberg Beadazzels - Macarena, which I am not really sure about.  Then I added some brass dragonfly charms and various flat backed gems and pearls, followed by a small screw eye bail in the cork, with a brass lock and key charm attatched.  I might put a leather thong through the eye eventually, but at the moment I think I will keep it as it is.
Wish Bottle 3
I wanted the bottle to have an ethereal,  fairy type feel/look to it, but I’m not sure if I have quite achieved it this time.  The closeness of the pictures make it look a bit blobby, but as a first attempt it’ll do and I think I will give it to my mum for her birthday!

It makes me think of a message in a bottle, the embellishments remind me of sand/seaside..?

WOW I love it Helen( when i stick small iteams together to give them a extra fairy look i sprinkle with ultra fine holographic glitter while the glue is still wet this fills in all tiny gaps inbetween and around the gems ect i just brush off the extra when dry i also do it with very fine sand to give it that beach look) i love what you have done with it i love the fact its part incrusted and cascades down the sides big love marc
