Tiny Perfume Bottles

After I got all the glue off my fingers I could sit back and look at my handy work. My little peep doll Mary is such a girlie girl and loves different perfumes yet she only had a few bottles. Now she has a dresser top full of a nice assortment for every day use and any special occasion.

Mom left me with some vintage Spinel Earrings that I was sure I would never wear due to them being clip on or screw on types of earrings. I kept looking at them and wondering what to do with them. I have a big tub of mom's old jewelry and also had little bags of parts and pieces.

I took the earrings apart and learned what Spinel actually was. Definition: a hard glassy mineral consisting of an oxide of magnesium and aluminum; occurs in various colors that are used as gemstones. These stones she had were all clear. So I took apart the earrings and lined up the individual stones that have many cuts so are very detailed.

I sorted through the old bit and pieces and found some single earrings and other stones to use for caps. I love reusing items and now mom has another place amongst the little peeps on Lundby Lane.

First and second photos show all the tiny perfume bottles Mary now has. Third and fourth photos show all the bottles I made from mom's old jewelry. Once I got the glue off my King Kong size hands I sat back and admired the tiny bits and pieces of a fine lady who will always be with me and all have a place in Peepville.


  1. Brilliant, Amy! They look so realistic with the precisely cut spinel in different sizes, and different caps like real perfume bottles would have. My only query - how is Mary going to know which is which, without any labels?! ;-)

  2. wonderful parfums bottles! congratulations, is a beautiful work!

  3. wow..the perfume bottles are lovely... great job!! she's a girl after my own heart. you can never have too much perfume.

  4. Oh No... So now do I have to make teeny tiny labels for all of them? Oh wait. I'll send Mary to Smellology School.

    Good to hear from you all. Thanks for stopping by.

  5. What a great thing to do with your Moms jewelry :)

  6. Lovely memory of you mum! And I love the caps!
