Designer Tips

  • Add about 1/2" of soil, a small amount of moss, then sedum or other tiny succulents to a glass bottle charm. Total dirt/moss should be about 3/4". Mist very lightly as needed to maintain; do not overwater.
  • Cut roughly 12" of wire. Wrap wire around the bottle approx. 3 times. Wrap wire one more time half way so that both wires are on opposite sides of the bottle. Make loops with each one of these wires for your chain. Continue to wrap the wire 2 more times and secure wire around both the existing loops before you cut off the excess wire.
  • If desired, use bronze wire and crystal or gemstone beads to wire wrap a beaded chain section to add to the necklace chain.
