Green Faerie Bottle


Hello there creative friends, I've missed you! I have been working away on lots of projects, despite my blogging absence, and I feel like maybe I've turned a corner here and can get back to regular posts. Fingers crossed! I've recently finished a new Faerie Bottle, it's a hand blown, antique glass vase in beautiful, shimmering green. I've made a pretty stopper from one of my treasured marbles and some glass jewels. I am always combing the thrift shops and tag sales for pretty bottles and vases to use for my Faerie Bottles. I've made the filigree on this bottle to look like knobbly twigs and the Faerie wings have jewels and Swarovski crystals.
 
Here's a closer picture of the Faerie, I need to get some pictures from a different angle so the crystals show up better.







So there you have it, my latest project. Thanks for stopping by, I am excited to catch up with all my creative blogger friends over at Wonder Why and Natural Suburbia, be sure to check them out!

Blessings Friends!

  1. Wowza! That is stunning! I love all of the details. Are you using recycled glass? I love all of the wire and medal too. Is some of that sotter?

    1. Hello there Andrea,Thank you! The glass for the wings are cut from sheets of art glass used for stained glass windows and other glass projects. The filigree is constructed using copper, brass and solder. I have used recycled glass for other projects though, it inspires some interesting creations.
