Altered Bottle Tops

We have a new Flickr group called 'Art 'n Soul' . The group challenges run every month and the first challenge is to alter 3 bottle tops....

Here is my entry. The pics were from a book by Hot Off The Press called 'Easy Peasy Jewellery' and they have the added bonus of having matching acetate overlays, intended for making pendants, rings etc.

I thought they were perfect for the inside of the bottle tops!

I have edged the inside of each top with some seed beads and then added a scrap of vintage lace and a silver heart charm at the bottom.
There is a challenge at Dezinaworld to use lace in a project... OK there isn't a lot of lace on this piece but there is a teeny weeny piece!

  5. Hello, darlin'.
    I came in to contact you through this avenue because I can't get into Flickr today. Everything else is navigating just fine, so I guess it's NOT just me.
    Hope you are having a lovely day.

  6. Viv these are lovely, could see them used on a small, elegant Christmas table decoration - or are the ytoo time consuming?

  7. Stunning, loving your blog Viv!
