The Project:
I wanted to create a cute, unique gift container for a small gift and I decided to use these 4oz jelly jars.
I adhered patterned paper to each lid and tied each jar off with The Twinery's twine. 
{Each jar has a combination of two of the following colors: FlaxHoneydewBlossomCaribbeanPink Sorbet, and Buttercream.}

And what is a gift container without a gift?

I used the Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio ToolBubble Caps, and Metal Charms {all are Oval 25} to create pendants.
I love the  Metal Charms - such beautiful detail and I love that they are actually metal (instead of a plastic imitation).
Each pendant is strung on a length of FlaxHoneydew, or Blossom twine. I added a little pearl to finish off each necklace.

I love using The Twinery's twine to create jewelry! It is so soft and comfortable to wear and I love to leave the necklace ends so that it can be easily tied in a bow to create a necklace of any length.

Thanks for stopping by today! 
{And please stop back by tomorrow...I'll be having a giveaway!}
