The Sand Bottle is waiting for blessings from friends…

.. In another life it was a Tequila bottle ( shown for comparison ). 221 proudly displayed on the bottom in hammered copper..  I used a carefully crafted wooden anvil/form for that.

Cutting off the glass threads was the easy part.. Making a cork that wouldn’t rot and fall apart over time was the hard part.  Now it just needs one more embellishment.

A little copper ropework and the bottle is finished. Well, the soldering didn’t go so well.. but it looks ok.
