MoJo


Perfume bottle Necklace

A close up of the front I used an old cuff link at the top,an attachment from Red Velvet etsy and the perfume bottle with Yes another Tin photo( I just love these Rust and all.





Hi Again,
wow twice in one week,YES the mojo is back and my daughter Nicole is so pleased as, I have been annoying her cos I was bored well not creating, anyway.
The creative process I’m often asked about where do I get my idea’s, well with this necklace I was in my favourite antique shop when I saw this small perfume bottle its about 1"1/2 by 1" wide I thought wow what a cool idea for a necklace.
It cost about $5 I loved the brass lid on it as well. As many of you that know me I love to have jewerly that if it flips onto the wrong side while wearing it still looks cool, so the label of the perfume bottle is on the other side. It did have a small amount of “Smelly perfume” left in it I poured it out and washed it but it left a cool black residue inside still, which I liked the look of.
I must say I do struggle with the chain still I can do the focal point,but the chain! still gives me trouble.
I have made another necklace this week and also bezels which I’m about to fill with resin. Also I started on a Junk watch this week a work in progress that one.
Have a great weekend
Jen

This is just too beautiful for words Jen!!! I'm sure the original owner of the perfume bottle would be in awe of what's happened to it later in it's life.

I am also glad that your mojo has demanded some attention from you again.

Gretz said...

Jen you are starting to embarass me with all these Christmas presents you are making me ;-)

WONDERFUl your Mojo is back.. tell Nicole that your Mojo wouldn't have any problems if it had a dedicated room to work in ;-) Perhaps she and Matthew could share a room? A curtain down the middle? He could have the side away from the door since he sits on his 'puter most of the time? LOL

OMGosh ... I love it and I just picked up three of this type of tiny bottles! I had planned to put fairies in them but your bottle necklace is a way better idea! Mine have plastic lids so I will have to figure something out for the lid. Is that a real tin photo? and how did you ever get it in that bottle!!!
I just have to say TOOOO KEWL!

That's great! I have a teeny tiny little bottle that hangs on a necklace I wear, it's probably my favourite piece of jewellery.

Hooray for mojo!

Thenks for stopping by, Jen...love when you do. I go through your beautiful art pieces and am always overwhelmed by the design and intricate parts of your pieces..so gorgeous and always interesting. You have a talent for obtaining and utilizing so many excellent bits and pieces...I get inspired and think I should open my eyes wider as I would love to find things like this but obviously I am not being observant enough. I love, love your artwork and admire your ability to create such wonderful art. Be well...hope your holidays were great and that 2010 brings all good "little" things your way! Hugs, Gayle.

I thought you would like to keep record where all your artwork has gone: this necklace is in mine hands now and I will proudlu take care of it. We had such a good ime and I hope you've recovered from the sleepless nights. Love, Svetlana
