Anne whipped up this uncluttered mini bottle pendant using eCrafty.com’s 1200J Mini Bottle Kit. The beads can move freely on the headpins but remain suspended within the bottle. The pendant uses eCrafty.com‘s jewelry supplies including seed beads, headpins, snake chain, mini bottles. #jewelrysupplies #beads #diy #handmade #jewelry #etsy #messageinabottle #messagebottlejewelry
How to make it:
1. String the seed beads onto the headpins. You may need to try a few beads before you find one with a small enough hole to stay on the head pin
2. Trim the headpins to shorter lengths as shown. (eCrafty’s secret weapon is nail clippers. They work great to trim fine wire!)
3. Push the headpins into the bottom side of the cork. It has to be a pretty tight group to fit into the bottle.
4. Finish it off after inserting the cork in the bottle by adding the eye screw to the top of the cork and adding a cord or chain. If you use our 1240W snake chain as Anne did, you will need to remove the linking chain temporarily to slide the pendant onto the chain. Then replace the chain.
