Miniature Monday - Beads and Miniature Hookahs

I wanted to try my hand at making hookahs for my mini marketplace scene.

There was a lot of bead and jewelry finding sorting and selecting (and lots of shopping too!)  This is what I've come up with so far:


I started out with a wire twisted at the bottom so it wouldn't fall out of the silver bead.  These beads are laid out in the order I strung and glued them onto the wire.



This is the finished product!













Some of these are not complete.  When I couldn't decide what to do next, I left them alone and will take another look later.


I also made a bunch of perfume bottles and jars.  I really enjoyed this adventure.
 
This is my absolute most favorite Hookah.  I just have to put in the hoses and it's DONE!
 
Thanks for looking!
