I saw these in a store and had to try and make them myself, and now I'm addicted. I'm making a bunch for christmas gifts. They go nice on candles too. The one on the left is hemitite beads, it looks awesome, but it doesn't show up very well on the dark bottle, but thats all I had at the moment. I've already given a lot of them away, but If anyone is interested I'll try to make a tut when I start my next one.



Well, I finally got around to making a tutorial. This is my first one, and I don't know if I explained myself very well, so if you have questions, feel free to message me. Also this has a lot of pics to show what I'm trying to describe, but they aren't very good pics. Sorry about that. Hopefully they are good enough to get the point across. please share any modifications you make to this pattern. I'd like to see them. Thanks.

You'll need
---------------
--wine bottle (empty or full, but I don't recommend emptying it while your working on your first one Wink )
--needle nose pliers
--round nose pliers
--6mm jump rings
--4mm jump rings
--beads
--1" eyepins
or 20 gauge wire(This is cheaper,but much more time consuming.For your first project,I recommend eyepins)

*if you use wire, you'll need wire cutters also, to cut you sections to about an 1" -1 1/2" long sections.

1- put bead on the eyepin and curl the other end into a circle to match. this section should look something like this.   O-@-O
(make ~ 133 of these sections.)

2-open a 4mm jump ring and add two sections then close. be sure to twist the jump rings to the side to open them, then twist it back to close. don't pry them open, they don't close well that way.
(make ~ 42 of these 4mm pairs) put these 4mm pairs to the side for now.

3-Open a 6mm jump ring. Add 4 sections and close.

4-open a 6mm jump ring, and join it to one of the sections from step three. add 3 more sections and close.

5-open a 6mm jump ring, and join it to the last section put on in the previous step. add 3 more sections and close the jump ring. (repeat 3 more times) you should have a long chain with 2 sections hanging down from each ring. see pic


6-open a 6mm jump ring, and join it to the last section put on in the previous step. add 2 more sections and join it to the first section made in step 3 to form a ring of sections with two sections hanging down from each jump ring. put this on a wine bottle.

7-open a 6mm jump ring,and add two sections. Join 2 hanging sections to form a triangle with 2 dangleing section at the bottom point.(do this all the way around. 7 triangles). see pic.


8-open a 6mm jump ring, and add 2 sections. join 2 hanging sections to form a diamond with 2 dangleing section at the bottom point. (repeat this all the way around to form 7 diamonds). see pic.


9-repeate step 8.

10-open a 6mm jump ring, and add 2 of your 4mm pairs. join 2 hanging sections to form a deformed looking diamond with 2 dangleing section at the bottom point. (repeat this all the way around to form 7 deformed diamonds). see pic.


11-open a 6mm jump ring, and add 2 of your 4mm pairs. join 2 hanging sections to form a large diamond. with 2 dangleing section at the bottom point. (repeat this all the way around to form 7 large diamonds) see pic.


12- repete step 11

13-make 7 new sections to dangle from the bottom of your beaded wine bottle cover.
add a bead to your eye pin, and instead of curling the other end to match fold the wire over and pinch it with your pliers so your bead doesn't fall off. (make 7 bottom sections)

14-open a 6mm jump ring, and add one bottom section you just made. then join two dangleing secions to form another large diamond, with your bottom section dangling from the bottom point. (do this all the way around, and your done.) see pics.

Those are lovely.  I made something similar to this on ornaments for Christmas presents a while back.  But I think yours are even better because you can enjoy them all year round.  Smiley

They are absolutely gorgeous, and such a great idea that i'm surprised i've never seen people adopt it for use in their own homes...

Great job!

BOOKMARKED!

Those are gorgeous.  Thanks for sharing.

But they must take so long to do!  Maybe the next time I'm sick and bored because I'm stuck in the house...
