This unique, mystical glass vial necklace is sure to turn heads and is easy to make!

You can also incorporate your taste and imagination so that the glass vial necklace really reflects what makes you, well........”you.” Feel free to change out the colors or even the charms used to suit the design you want.

For this Instructable, we are adding a fairy tale twist by making it a potion necklace. Be sure to read through the steps before you begin so you can get a sense of the project and the steps involved.

Let’s get started!

<p>Thanks for the kind words everyone!</p>
<p>There are other Instructables out there for this sort of thing, but I think this one is the absolute best. Brilliant, and I can't wait to try it out (with variations on the theme, of course...). </p>
<p>Thanks so much for the vote CalebGreer!</p>
<p>Cool project! These could work great at a Holloween party!</p>
<p>It really depends on the glue that you use. For the one we used, it took about half a day to <br>dry all the way to the bottom, plus we had to use a hair dryer's low heat<br> setting from time to time. Be careful with the dryer though, as the bottle may <br>react to the heat as well. <br><br>If you don't allow the glue dry, expect the <br>glitter to settle at the bottom eventually. But don't worry, it won't look bad because the glue has usually turned blue from some of the glitter. Have fun with it!</p>
<p>How long did you wait for the glue/glitter to dry? How do you know it is dry all the way to the bottom? Will it mold or turn funky if you do not dry it long enough? </p><p>I have a couple of the bottles and have been looking for inspiration for a while.</p><p>The eye pin through the cork is a really good idea.</p><p>Thanks</p>
<p>These are cute :) They'd be fun to use for cosplay or for Halloween!</p>
