Retired - Message in a Bottle Necklace

PROJECT N749
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Intermediate
There is something both mysterious and romantic about a message in a bottle. This necklace captures those feelings with a petite glass bottle that has been delicately wire wrapped and had a rolled up message tucked inside. What will you put in your bottle?
Instructions
  1. To make this necklace, please watch the video: How to Make Wire Netting Around a Bottle.
  2. Based upon what you learned in the video, wire wrap your bottle.
  3. Take your chain nose pliers and gently open one of the top spiral loops near the cord (the same way you would open a jump ring). Slip one of your end chain links into this spiral and then close it back up with your chain nose pliers.
  4. Repeat the previous step on the other side of your bottle with your other end chain link.
  5. Take a small piece of paper (3/4" x 1.5") and write a little message on it. Roll it up into a scroll shape and place inside your bottle.
  6. All done!
