Cupcake Wishes Glass Vial Necklace Tutorial
Created by: Amy Mickelson
Make a hole through the center of the cork using a heavy-duty needle. You may need to use flat-nose pliers to push the needle through the cork.
Use chain-nose pliers to bend the half-moon outer loops of the round filigree down 90 degrees.
Add the cork, the round filigree, a cupcake bead and seed bead to a 3" head pin, and finish with a wrapped loop.
Add 2 jump rings to the loop.
Add cupcake sprinkles to a glass vial, and put the cork on. If desired, use some white glue to adhere the cork to the vial.
Cut a desired length of chain, and slide it through the 2 jump rings on the cork top.
Finish by adding jump rings and a lobster clasp.
One or more parts (or tools) used in this project are no longer available, so we've moved the whole project into the "Misc Jewelry Tutorials with Issues" area while we decide what we want to do about it: find a good sub, re-make this project, or retire the tutorial.
Our ceramic cupcake beads are limited stock... if you work with polymer clay or air-dry clay, you can make your own little cupcakes to place on top of a design like this. Adding a hole to turn them into a bead, keeps them more securely in place, than just gluing them on.
