Loving the matt and shiny finishes on these pieces. Such a soft way to contrast recycled glass beads. Beads made from gin and wine bottles.

Not my usual recycled glass story, but I was given some stained glass a while ago and asked if it might be useful. I picked a few colours and made these earrings. Yes, very useful! Thank you.
A bracelet featuring beads made from gin and champagne bottles. Really loving the green in between the silver and gold Gin bottle beads.
A pendant necklace made from wine, gin and vodka bottles. What a lovely mix of blues and greens.
Oh gosh, wasn’t expecting to make these super cute earrings today! The bottom bead is from a green ginger wine bottle, middle bead is from a Tanqueray Gin bottle and the top bead is from a Coopers Ale beer bottle.
Inspired by Monday. Lately I have been making all sorts of pendants that sit vertically, today I thought I would try something a little bit different. Beads made from gin and tonic bottles and Green Depression glass.
From what I can tell there are two types of people: ones that love matchy-matchy sets and others that don’t mind if things aren’t exactly matchy-matchy. What type of person are you? Personally I love sets like this that are not exactly matchy-matchy but still work together as a set. The earrings are made from a Hendricks Gin bottle and the necklace features beads made from gin and wine bottles.
Over the years the beads accumulate! Every time I make a pair of earrings, I make 3 or 4 beads just so I can get them right. Sometimes I pull old pieces apart and put the beads back to use in other pieces. It’s kind of nice to have a collection of beads ready and waiting to go!
Always interesting to see how new glass melts in the flame. I like to make small test beads to start with. I don’t know yet why these two beads turned out different. I would need to make more to see what the typical bead was! Thanks to my lovely customer Joan for letting me try this special piece of glass.
