Beach Hut Bottle

This bottle started out life as a Jamison whisky bottle:

 I filled the bottle with white sea glass, added jute and burlap for decoration, then tied driftwood, broken sea shells along with a small sea glass heart to the front.

 I added copper wire, as it complimented the green bottle beautifully, to the top and bottom of the bottle.  This bottle reminds me of a beach hut.

Hi today I have another altered bottle to show you:

I rescued this beautiful bottle from the recycle bin at work and set about altering it.
I filled it with green, white & aqua sea glass I collected from my local beach.

 After winding string around the bottle I tied driftwood and broken shells, which have been edged with guilding wax, along with sea glass I have drilled and beautiful shell beads, then finished off with green wire and a small vile filled with tiny sea glass.
