That is very pretty. Did you use a tutorial or instructions?

Thank you, I used a combination of instruction and trial and error. The idea for the charm came from a pair of diadem earrings I made from the first Bead Fantasies book (the top of the bottle is a variation of the diadem). One of my friends commented that they reminded her of Jeannie's bottle so I started to experiment with different combinations of beads to make the rest of the bottle.

No need to be nervous!  It's BEAUTIFUL!

As someone who sells a LOT of cell phone charms, I must say, I'm a little jealous!  Would you be willing to share a tutorial or at least some really close up pictures? (grin)

It really is gorgeous, and I've been looking for one to switch my current one out with - this would definitely win a spot in my rotation!

Thanks  Grin,
Here's a diagram that I made:

I used 4mm and 6mm glass pearls, 15/0 rocailles, bugle beads, 4mm czech firepolished beads and some 11/0 clear seed beads (these are barely visible). The bottle is made by stacking beaded beads on a head pin. For the larger beaded beads I added some clear seed beads to the head pin and slipped the beaded beads over them so that they would have some more support. Hope this helps Smiley.
