Altered mini jars are popping up all over! You can stuff them with everything from love notes to trinkets. They are great for storing small beads and glitter too. I was so excited when I spotted them for my shop! I ordered a slew of them and have been making many different designs with them.
I especially love the idea of building a glass shrine or a mini terrarium with one. To make a piece of jewelry, just wrap the neck with a few loops of twine or jump-ring some chain and dangle some charms around the neck.
The corks fill the opening nicely and are easy to remove. They can be glued with a drop of two if you want to secure the cork.
I have the jars in the Alter Me section of the store. You can see that section here. They are sold by the dozen, 2" tall, 7/8" across the bottom, they come with cork toppers and they are clear glass.
