This year's set is a special order for an aquaintence here in town.
I had the bottles chosen and the labels stamped from last year yet, so there wasn't much to completing their assembly.
Yet it took me a whole year to get around to it.
polyester lace, crummy pearls and cheap looking irridescent tulle.
These are last year's bottles in the photo above.
This year my supplies were a bit more limited, so I improvised.
Plastic buttons, a white feather, some cheap lace and even some
yellowed string made their were into the bottles.
The magic is in the faux mica-like flakes I pour in last.
It sticks to the inside of the bottle and gives the contents an ethereal shimmer.
I serioulsy need to make a set for myself.
I make stuff to give or sell away
and all I keep for myself are the photos
and the memories of creating.
