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.
What I have shown today is still very much at the experimental stage!
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.
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!
