This is one of those little 2 inch bottles you can buy in craft stores.  I've covered it in beads using a couple different stiches.



Are there any other mini bottle beaders out there? Feel free to share.

Cute! Are you using it as an amulet, pendant, or...?

Eventually it'll get a a cord of some type so it can be worn. I'm not sure if that makes it an amulet or a pendant. Some of the other ones I've done are being used as rear view mirror adornment.

 I'm one of those people who have 50 particially completed projects & I'm afraid this is one of them.  But I was very please with how it turned out so I posted it, even though it's not quite finished. 

I'm disapointed that the picture seems a little blurry now that I've posted it

Very nice bottles!!  I was planning a bead bottle, before beading I wanted to place my daughters umbilical cord stump in it.  I am wierd like that I still have it in box kept with old baby's first yr things. It would be a true amulet for her.  Of course the beadwork would cover the ugly thing in the bottle. Or is this just too gross?

I am not obsessed with Perty Thangs, I am disciplined...

I have alot to share, all you gotta do is ask.

 
Crochet, x-stitch, Ribbon embroidery, plastic canvas, beadwork, polymer clay, wire work, and now TATTING!!  Please help me learn to knit, then I might be complete.

These are awesome! I'd LOVE to hear more about just how to create them. I don't think I've noticed these types of bottles in Michaels, but you can sure bet I'll be combing the isles trying to find them tomorrow!
