Long Neck Treasures

What to do with all the beer bottle sea glass that is so commonly found along the shore.



Today I paired a few pieces with a small wired wreath form and some 24 gauge gold wire.



The wreath form was just 39 cents. A roll of gold wire is about $6.


When displayed near light, the beer bottle glass glows a beautiful amber color.



This could also be used as a wreath to hang in a sunny window.


Or a wild and crazy necklace for a dress form.



Just so the other ones have something fancy too, this one gets some faux peonies added to the neck.




And a disco pendant for this one.




Just so you know, I would not really wear a sea glass wreath around my neck, but it's the evening and my sea glass needed to be photographed in some light.

Oh, of course not. I would NEVER wear a sea glass wreath around my neck either.


Ok, yes, yes I would. I would SO wear a sea glass wreath around my neck. It is so pretty.

Sorry, I have no class at all.

Smiles,

More fun at your house - it's been kind of dull around here today.

Well, this jewelry artist thins your sea glass necklace is a delight and should be worn on a black shirt to remind you of the lovely day that created it.

I think it's adorable and I am in love with pairing soft dreamy things with rustic, nature inspired things, so to me, your display on the dress form is perfect!

Oh and the fact that I am obsessed with sea glass might have something to do with it as well. ;)

Gorgeous! I'm not a jewelry person..., but I've seen the seaglass you wrapped and hung on the chandelier..., that I want to do!

I think I'd wear it! The colour is lovely with the light through it, and I like the intricate twists of the wire.

Hi Lili ~ You are SO creative and I love seeing you bring your visions to life. I am also a sea glass afficianado...mine is all from the West Coast, but hope to collect a few from the East Coast some day. Your dress forms really make me smile. Have a wonderful weekend!

Love the piece of sea glass that still looks like the neck of a beer bottle. Someone's lips were likely wrapped around it!!!! I'll bet some people would wear it, it's nice.....

Lili, I think your dress forms are the best dressed forms in all the land! I love the sea glass wreath, and I would totally wear that as a necklace...call me crazy, but I would!
