Step 1: Wrap Beads
With your round nose pliers create two wrapped links using the red glass bead and the Swarovski rhinestone ball. Set aside.
Step 2: Fill Bottle With Glitter
Remove the cork from the bottle. Fill the bottle with your glitter mixture. If you wish to secure the cork, place a very small amount of Diamond Glaze on the rim of the bottle and press the cork in securely. This seal is permanent.
Using the 36” length of wire wrap the top of the bottle with a messy wire wrap, incorporating the split ring. Try to overlap and layer the wire. Tuck the ends of the wire under the wrap and make sure there are no sharp edges.
Step 3: Add Letters to Chain
With your chain nose pliers open a jump ring and feed it through one end of the chain and through the split ring. Close securely. At the next space between links use a jump ring to attach the letter ‘e’ with a jump ring. Repeat down the chain until you have spelled out ‘drink me’ with a space between the ‘k’ and the ‘m’.
Step 4: Add Beads and Finish Necklace
At the end of the chain use a jump ring to attach the wire link on the red glass bead, then repeat with the rhinestone ball. With your chain nose pliers, open the loop on the spring ring clasp and feed it through the wire loop on the rhinestone ball. Close the loop securely. Close the necklace by attaching the clasp to the split ring on the bottle.
