This my version of a message in a bottle. When you raise the orange bead, you unscroll a message! In this case: the peace sign. This was a lot of fun to make work. I look forward to making more--I have plenty of bottles and jars!
~3" peace bottle
~5 1/2" heart bottle
PEACE bottle RELEASED Feb. 7, 2009, Starbucks in Barnes & Noble, Palm Desert, CA

This one (below) made from found and junk store bottles, found key, scrap wire, plastic and glass beads, thrift store material scraps.
Outside bottle has quote: "Peace is our gift to each other." ~ Elie Wiesel
Pull up KEY to "unlock"/unscroll message: peace symbol with wave pattern (both sides)
Ooops, kinda cheating with this one, "released" March 28, 2009, in my aunt's hotel room, Avalon, CA (Catalina Island)...
Another made from found and junk store bottles, found key, scrap wire, plastic and glass beads, thrift store material scraps.
Pull up ORANGE BEAD to unscroll quote: "Whenever there is a sentient being there is a chance for kindness." ~Seneca 4 BC -- 65 AD (although I took liberties and replaced "human" with "sentient" :) One side has human footprints drawn with message, the other side has paw prints with same quote.
RELEASED Saturday, March 28, 2009 Avalon, CA (Catalina Island), at a candy shop window; corner of Sumner and Crescent Ave.'s
"What we see depends mainly on what we look for." ~Sir John Lubbock
