I have a custom order that allows me to create with little glass bottles with cork tops. I am filling them, labeling them, wiring charms to them, coloring them and more. Necklaces, earrings and some tabletop decorations are being designed and created by me. Having a bunch of fun here! Some of the ideas I am using for filling the bottles are mixing: flower petals, pink salt, colored sugar, tiny beads, sequin hearts, dessert toppings and more. What am I excited about receiving? One of the lovely Adornment Jewelry boxes!!!
