Beads in a bottle necklace

I have been wanting to make some necklace pendents with these little bottles for a long time now.  You now maybe with some tiny sea shells and some sand.  But I got another one of those light bulb ideas the other day and couldn’t stop thinking about it especially for the 4th of July Holiday coming up soon.
I’m in love with it!  It was simple and easy anyone can do it.  It took me longer to gather all of the supplies than make the actual necklace so I know you can do this one.
Seed beads ( blue, white, and red)

Clear bottle with cork ( found mine @ Joann’s)

Necklace chain or old necklace

Star charm or white card stock

Supper glue


As you can see here I layered the colors of the beads to look like red, white and blue stripes.  I just put the beads in the jar one or two at a time until I was happy with what I had.  The one little bottle I was able to cut out a small star out of a glittered card stock I had on hand and place inside the bottle.  Glue the cork in place and done.
Cute huh!
I had some other charms on hand that I added just for fun.  I also lucked out having this blue bead chain necklace on hand that I could use.  Thanks Sis for the big bag of old jewelry you didn’t want anymore.  I got lucky with that one.






Hope this inspires you to make something patriotic today. 
Have a good one.
