- Screw-in eye hooks

- Strip of paper and pen
- E-6000 Craft Adhesive

Cut about a 6″ x 1/2″ strip of paper and wrote out my wish. It was just for me, but something that matters deeply to me and something that I want to keep as a reminder with me. It is a goal. A hope. A wish.
I rolled it up nice and tight, then tied with a tiny bit of pink ribbon.
I inserted it into the glass bottle and used some E6000 to seal it up tight and screwed the eye hook in, also adding a dot of E6000 to it as well.
Next I grabbed a small chain and some pink ribbon and started weaving the ribbon in and out of the links in the chain.
As I went, I added in a few beads to add some extra texture and dimension. I did not weave the entire thing, only a section, loosely wrapping the rest around the chain.
I then grabbed some bigger chain, as well as equal lengths of lace and seam binding. I tied one end to a link for each, one above the other, and started weaving alternately until the end. I tied off the ends on the other side just like the start. I made sure to even out the chain so that the weaving was in the center.
I added a little pearl, some lace, and a ring and added the bottle to longer, thinner chain.
FInally, I attached the two chains and the pink ribbon to jump rings and added a clasp.
