Tutorials > Mini Bottle Charms Tutorial
sewing needle
mini bottle with cork
3/4" head pins
2" eye pin
jump rings
chain nose and round nose pliers
1.)  Add a bead (that will fit inside the mini bottle) to a head pin and make a 90 degree bend just above the bead. Grasp end of the bent head pin in round nose pliers and roll inward making a loop. Attach the loop of the bead you just made to a 2 inch eye pin (figure 1).
2.)  Make a hole in the cork by inserting a needle into the center of the cork and pushing it through (figure 2).
3.)   Remove needle from cork and insert the eye pin with dangling bead at the bottom of the cork (figure 3).

5.)  Put a small amount of glue on cork and insert cork in bottle (figure 5). Make another loop on the top of the cork and add a jumpring.

  Try varying what's inside the bottles. You can add watch parts, beads, or anything else that will fit. Add different findings and spacers inside and outside the bottle.
These are lots of fun to make.
