Altered Bottle - The keys to the Past

 Hello my dear friends,
at the moment I'm finishing up some projects which have been sitting on my table for quite some time and this altered bottle is one of them. So I'm very pleased that this one is done.

 Soldering on the jumprings on this one was a bit challenging:) Not to say it drove me nuts and while the soldering iron was out and hot,

I finished this one too. Not as I wanted it but I still like it.
Wishing you all a wonderful Monday and as always thank you so much for stopping by and for taking the time to leave a comment. It is always very much appreciated.

Hugs and love,

I just love your bottles. I have a pile of them waiting for some altering. When I get around to it of course. lol

Your Altered bottle is just Stunning Marie.
heres a little tip for soldering on those pesky jump rings.
If you have a helping hand. Its a device that has two arms with clips on them and a maganifing glass. They only cost about $5.00
You can use a clip to hold the jump ring in place while you just touch the solder to the ring. Easy Peasy. If you need help finding one let me know and I'll get you a link.
Hugs Lynn

Dear Marie,
your bottles are so beautiful, both. The charm hanging on the first one, is stunning -love the shine in it- and the sweet keyes- I can imagine the jumprings were difficult-lol
The other one is also so lovely with the soldered neck, and wonderful pearlbutton around the "belly"
Such beautiful, and pretty bottles sweet friend.
Wish you a happy evening-
Hugs from Dorthe

Love the bottles... I've done a couple and have loads to do... Something else on my to do list... I'll post some pics of the ones I have finished... I'm not sure I've ever posted them! I did get to some little grapevine wreaths today though... Please check them out. I'd love to know what you think!

Hi Marie,
Well these two bottles are simply divine!
Just having finished my Heart Strings (now posted!) I can imagine just how difficult it is to solder a jump ring! OMG! How clever are you!
Love the sweet image in your charm and the keys and beads - so gorgeous!
The second one is equally beautiful and simple and so is the rose from your garden!
Love and hugs,

They are both beautiful, my dear Marie! I love the bling piece you've added to the first one. Yes, the jump rings can be quite challenging.
Have a wonderful day :-)!
