vintage bottle and beads







I took out my beads today and decided to make something with this vintage bottle complete with aluminum cap. I love the iridescence that age has given this little bottle. I wove a necklace with czech beads, some pearls and other beads. Inside the bottle is some moss that I gathered in Oregon, it's such a pretty green color and it just has sentimental meanings for me.

Oh, that's just gorgeous! I love the bottle and the moss, so pretty. I've been wearing my skeleton key necklace a lot, I so adore it!

unusual. Keep warm and have a good Christmas and New Year.

That necklace is really very lovely. Moss is so pretty.

It seems like you're already following my blog (When you try to add me do you get a message that you already follow and asks you if you want to stop following?) I wonder if I've turned my sharing off. I'll see if I can work it out.

Happy Holidays!

I love this piece for all the reasons you have described! I love the colours you have used-they really accent the bottle(which is just magical) and the moss-I love that it came from Oregon and has such special meaning to you. I hope to see more of these!
xoxo!
