Art Retreat Crystal Bottle Topper

I had the opportunity to attend an art retreat held at Aravaipai Canyon in Arizona. We learned a host of new techniques which I am happy to share with you.

The bottles were purchased from Cost Plus Imports. We each made a topper for the bottle using old chandelier crystals, glass bobbles and small crystals. After working a pleasing design of crystals, we soldered them together and attached each topper to the bottle permanently. They are beautiful when the sun hits them. I filled my bottle with extra bobbles before attaching the topper.
