I was given an empty Hendricks Gin bottle a while ago now, and I have kind of held onto it, waiting for the right time to smash it and turn it into beads! Then I was given another empty one not that long ago, and then I was given an actual bottle of gin for Christmas! So, with three bottles to play with it felt like the right time to smash one of them and start making beads. And I’m glad I did, because the glass is lovely to melt, and the end result is a super dark brown bead that looks really elegant. I have made the first beads into a pair of earrings, and I’ll be making a bracelet to share with you very soon.
