Rainy days crafts: Perfume Bottle Necklace

It rained a lot in the past days (well, actually it's still raining...), so I had a lot of spare time while forced at home by the weather, and I used it to finish some craft projects I was working on, here I will show my favourite: a perfume bottle necklace to match my Metamorphose Perfume Bottle skirt!

A while ago I purchased this skirt, which was one of my dream prints ever since I discovered lolita, and suddenly started to hunt for matching items: I already had a blouse, tights and shoes and I easily found a cute pink cardigan and some pink and gold hair accessories, but what I wanted the  most was  a perfume bottle necklace, similar to the one Metamorphose released with the print series (sorry for the bad picture, but this was the best stock image I could find...)

I found the original one on EGL sales a couple of times, and it wasn't incredibly costly,but I arrived too late and it was already sold :(
But then I remebered that years ago my grandmother gave me some mignon perfume bottles to play with that were just the right size for a necklace!
Luckily I still had some of the tiny bottles at my parent's, so this weekend I put myself to work and created my personal version of the necklace:

I'm very satisfied of how it came out: the bottle is not too big and it matches the skirt perfectly! For the chain   I used some simple white plastic pearls and some small pink hearts

Here's a picture of the necklace on a clear background (my pillow ^^), so you can see it better :)

I can't wait to wear it in a coordinate!

  7. Bella idea ed è venuta davvero bene, anche meglio dell'originale! E che coincidenza, anch'io ho fatto una collana con una bottiglietta di vetro di recente! Ho pubblicato oggi la foto sul blog. Però la mia mi sa che è decisamente più dolly kei :D

  8. L'ho vista, è molto bella :) anche a me piacciono il dolly e il mori, solo che non mi stanno molto bene come stili ^^
