Step 1: What You Need

Beer bottle of wine bottle
Glass cutter
Sand paper
Boiling water
Glass of ice water

Make sure both the pot of boiling water and ice water is big enough for the bottle

Step 2: Cut the Bottle

Turn one pot to get water boiling.

Create a 90 degree angle using to blocks of wood

Place a bottle in the nook

Use the glass cutter to cut a line around the neck (you may need more then one bottle)

Step 3: Breaking the Glass

Dip the bottle up to the cut in boiling water
Count to 20 then switch to ice water
You may need to switch it in and out several times.
Depending on where the glass pops off you may need thongs.

Step 4: Sanding Down

Use sand paper to sand down the edges (I used 60 and 150)

Step 5: Rock Out

Put the glass slider on either your ring figure or middle finger.
