Mustard Seed in a Bottle Charm by YellerCrakka Mustard Seed in a Bottle Charm by YellerCrakka
This is an inspirational Mustard Seed in a Bottle Charm Necklace I made as a gift for my mother on Mother's Day.

There is a real yellow mustard seed suspended in my signature goo, with little bubbles around it for a more mysterious appearance. It has a metal, ivy covered cross charm attached on a short length of chain. The bottle is about 1 inch tall with a real cork stopper securely glued in place.

My mother is a very spiritual and nurturing person, so when I was thinking of a jewelry piece to make her this year, I was instantly reminded of the story of the mustard seed, how with enough care and encouragement, something so small and insignificant can become a so large and important. I chose to include the ivy covered cross because it sort of represents how the seed sprouts and needs something to hold onto to help it grow. I'm just glad I had someone there to help me, and this is my way of saying thank you.

I loove this! Please tell me, how did you get the seed to look like it was floating in the middle of the bottle? I use resin in my bottles, but the clay peices like to sink...I just need some friendly advice from someone who knows what they are doing. :S

If your pieces are sinking, the resin might be too liquidy, you can try playing with the mixture of the resin itself by adding more of the catalyst and it should help. When it's mixed to the proper consistency it should dry almost completely solid so nothing should move around once it cures.

Thank you so much! I've been stumped has to how to fix my problem. Here lately I've been filling the bottles half full, letting it harden, then putting in my clay piece and filling the rest up full. That or dangling my stuff from the cork with wire...which isn't all that pretty. XD

Looking at your necklaces it totally inspires me to start crafting my own. That goo is such a good idea... Could you tell me how to mix it up? By the way I'm on quite a tight budget so if you know a way to make something like this with objects lying around the home you'd be a lifesaver!

May I ask where you get the bottles from? I have been searching around in the internet but it's really hard to find them... especially in Germany :(
