Beach in a bottle by Xerces Beach in a bottle by Xerces
Here's a little idea I had for a vial. I had some tiny shells in a box for my card making and there were some small enough for these vials, so I got some beach sand and added them in. I thought it looked kinda cute.
Beach sand, glycerine and real shells.

Mark 1 (Left): SOLD OUT due to limited numbers
Mark 2 (Right): AVAILABLE on ebay- contact me if you want it listed

the stuff inside is glycerine. so long as everything is clean, i don't think it will turn colour- nothing did for me until i used it with something that was painted!

how long does it take for the glue inside to dry?

These ones are made with glycerine which is a viscous liquid that won't harden- it means the things inside can still move around, just very slowly. They can be made with resin, however, that hardens within a few hours and the scene stays as it is :)

so cool.
If you dont mind me asking how do you properly seal these???
I use a cork and super glue, but after 2 weeks it breaks a part :(
I'd appreciate if anyone could help me out with this.

Hello ^_^
I plan on making a beach in a bottle so I have a question :)
Do you really need to use glycerin of can you use water too? Or can you use anything else besides glycerin??? :D Thank you in advance ^_^

I love your Jewelry by the way <3

Glad you like it! I would suggest not using water, as it can evaporate easily- even if you glue in a cap. Glycerin works for me because it is viscous (thick) and does not evaporate like water. Other clear oily liquids can work instead of glycerin :)
