The green jar is a vintage, green mason jar. I added a wire handle so it matched the other 2 jars, which already had a handle. All of the jars are available at your local craft store, and, if you have a Hobby Lobby in your area you can buy ready-made handles for mason jars. They are part of the "Transform Mason" line. You can check the line out here http://www.loew-cornell.com/transform-mason-pages-291.php
The beads and findings are from Cousins available at bead and major craft stores. There's really no right, or wrong way to embellish the jars. You only have to do what you think looks nice. Place an LED tea light inside and hang from trees for a garden party, or place them on a table. Etching the glass (on the inside) gives the coloured glass a nice glow, while maintaining its sparkle on the outside. My "go to" source for etching product is b&b etchall. I love both the cream and the liquid. Both produce a REAL, not fake, etch and the best part is that it's REUSABLE!!! so yes, you can use it again and again!
These bejeweled jars are so easy to make and you can find the instructions in the magazine. It's free to download, or you can view it online. You'll find lots of other great projects and information there and you can view previous issues.
