2. I attached the key ring to the second link on chain.
3. I put the chain thru the bottom of the bottle and brought it thru the top. I placed a clip on to the chain to hold the bottle and chain in place.

Step 2: Attach the Jewlery

1. If you had broken jewelry, like I've been collecting, this is a craft for you;)....Pick through your stash and find the pieces you want to use. I found a long black beaded necklace and 2 old earnings.
2. Cut the necklace in thee piece and tied off the ends. I took off about an inches of beads on the end. So I had room to tie it to chain.
3. Next, tied each stran to the bottom of the chain.
4. Last, Each string gets charm piece attached to the bottom.

Step 3: Hang

1. Last, hang the glass art in a window. I hung mine above the houseplants.

*Easy to make!
*Use what you have!
*Be creative!
