Is this useful – post #7

I have quite a collection of bottles from people, and I don’t always get around to using them. Often these bottles take some time to clean, and then I have to smash them, so the process prior to making beads is a bit time consuming. I kind of like to have a reason to make beads from these bottles, so this week has been quite cool, as it has given me a reason to take some of these bottles and turn them into new pieces of jewellery.

I have had these Cointreau bottle beads ready for a few days, but I thought it needed a little something extra, so I made some beads from my favourite orange cup to add to the earrings. Love how these turned out!
