You could fill them with resin, too, which dries hard.  It looks lovely, though!

I thought about that: I have resin to use. However, I had heard that you shouldn't put things into resin that actually contain moisture, like the live plants I like to use. I don't know what would happen if I did. I'm not entirely sure I want to waste some of the resin to find out.

I have to say, I love the mummy one. And from the looks of it, that one also took you the most time.

That is amazing! Makes me wish that I had gone into more detail in my crochet lessons.

Very pretty. I didn't know that mineral oil would keep the items preserved, or do you add something, like a drop of alcohol?

(By the way, we're actually not allowed to post links to our stores or talk about selling our wares in posts, but signature links are fine. )

Ah. Thanks. I had wondered about that, but I couldn't seem to find anything to confirm it. Perhaps I was looking the wrong places? Anyway, I went back and modified the post to correct that.

I haven't added anything to the bottle besides the mineral oil, and the items inside seem to be holding up just fine. Most of these items were dried already, anyway. They've been sitting here for over a month now, and still look great (I took these pictures just a couple of days ago).

Flower petals, however, do not hold up so well. I like your suggestion about the alcohol; perhaps I can try that next time? I'm a little unsure as to what to do about preserving things in the bottles like that. Especially things that haven't been dried already.

At least I finally found a glue that is actually watertight...

I can see why the poppy is your favorite. You did an amazing job on it.

The bird pendant is very nice, but I have to admit: I'm a sucker for leaves, so my attention was immediately drawn to that clasp.

It's a very pretty clasp.

oh! I like. opulent & rich looking.

Excatly.  I guess Isabel is a fitting name.  Kinda make me think "Queen Isabella."  Sorta Spanish/Moroccan influence.

Definitely. I had the same thoughts. Very nice. I just wish the pictures were slightly larger so we could get a bit more detail.

I love the color-rainbow change in this. The way it goes from one color to the next and through different shades. I haven't seen many things do that, and I really like it! You did a great job choosing the accent beads to go along, as well. They fit well and don't distract from the overall composition.

It certainly deserves the recognition it's getting, as do you!

Very pretty. I can see why you would love to wear it so much. It's gorgeous and unique.

Hehe. My first thought was that they looked like mini lamps rather than mushrooms. But I certainly see the mushroom in them as well.
