Costumer's Beautiful Jar Display

Check out these gorgeous pics sent in by customer Sherry Hunt. Sherry purchased these jars at last year's Believe Boutique. Sherry had been looking for a way to display her amazing and rare collection of African trade beads and in her own words, "these fit the bill."  I think you will agree that they do indeed.

To lid or not to lid

Occasionally, a unique bowl comes along that is so ornate and exquisite, it is the opinion of this crafter that putting a lid on it would be a disservice to its individuality. Therefore, you will sometimes see items for sale in the slide show that do not have any lids. While they look technically more like a candy dish than an apothecary jar, they are too cute not to include in the inventory. Here are a few of our lidless items we'd like to showcase.

The Late Night Misadventures of Apothecary Liz

July 29-30, 2011

It was around 11PM on a hot Arizona summer night in July when I decided to clean and sterilize a few of my "finds" from a recent trip to a thrift shop. I was looking forward to creating a beautiful apothecary jar with the wide candlestick and large glass bowl before me. So on went the hot water as I began the process of de-stickering and sterilizing, something I'd done hundreds of times in my trusty kitchen sink. I had just finished soaping the inside and started to lift the bowl to work on the outside sticker. For reasons I'll leave to more scientific minds than mine, the glass suddenly decided it no longer wanted to cohese* in one piece.  
 *I know it’s not a word but hey, that phrase sounded cool
