So here's another addition to my glass bottle experiments (hereafter known as Treasure Bottles, because that sounds better)

This one is made from Metallic Bronze seed beads, pearls, and an antique gold fairy charm sits on top completing the look. The bottle is filled with seafoam green microbeads (found them on clearance and flipped out.

I can make this in a variety of colors and such. So if you want one made just for you!

You can find this one on etsy here:

(I wish there was a "technical" or "educational" category...)

A wallpaper based upon the David Hillis, Derrick Zwickl, and Robin Gutell version of the circular phylogenetic "tree of life." I admit that I am rather aesthetically biased, but circular versions are widely considered to be the most accurate, thanks to the lack of any suggested hierarchy.
The caption, "The Blind Watchmaker," is of course a reference to the Intelligent Design debate, and was used as the title of Richard Dawkins' famous book. Intelligent Design supporters claim that life contains irreducible complexity, which can only be explained by an intelligent designer. This is not the case: what we see instead is a clear progression of transitional forms extending into the past, each level of complexity being easily reduced and explained by the natural processes of evolution. From simplicity may arise infinite complexity, which is why evolution itself may be considered "the blind watchmaker."

Because I fully expect someone to begin foaming at the mouth in the comments section, I would like to direct anyone curious about evolution to this explanatory series of videos: [link]

Any questions about evolution, or suggestions regarding typography etc. are welcome.

I was delighted to find the resource stock for this massive image here, [link] which is available to anyone so long as the application is non-profit and gives credit to the source. I warn you, it prints to a full size of almost five feet across.

Here are a few more treasure bottles I've made up in the theme of elements. Listed in order is: Water, Fire, Earth, Air. All are made using netted seed beads with fringes made from Swarovski, metal findings, and pearls/moonstone.

These are all available for 15$ each, or 45$ for the set. As of right now, I cannot replicate them, so get them while you can!

Here are a bunch of charms I made. They are created from glass bottles with cork stoppers. I digitally altered authentic poison labels, sized them down, printed them and adhered them. I also added loops to the corks for stringing onto chain.
I have these for sale in my shop! [link]
I also sell tons of mini bottles if you'd like to make your own charms!
