Remember the post around the holidays, when I showed my polymer clay snowmen bottles?
I have a box of bottles like that, and I was thinking about how they could be hung like a pendant.
On Saturday I took some time in the studio and started to play with one of them.
I made a collar out of wire around the empty glass bottle, and used my solder to solidify it around the neck of the bottle.
Then I made some loops, trying to make it look very old like an antique tonic bottle from long ago, so that chain or a wire wrap can be added to the loops to make it wearable.
With the extra wire, I made two very small loops and joined them to each other on the back side, like a linked chain.
It reminds me of a patent medicine bottle, or something from an herbalists shop or apothecary.
I don't know what might go inside. A snippet of a map, a love letter? Some dyed costume pearls, or gold flakes in resin? Sand from a special beach, with a seashell?
I think I'll list this one in the Etsy shop. Maybe one of you would like to play with it., and make it part of a special story you're telling in jewelry.
