These are my favorite items from Etsy. My husband has been giving me these mini bottles as gifts over the years and I recently purchased several more (various colors/shapes for my growing collection). Every one of them is as vibrant and shaped as perfectly as the picture. They are shipped very quickly and packaged securely. They are also very durable, as I dropped one on tile once, and it did not break. Sadly, I will no longer be able to afford them because the price was recently raised by a lot. However, I understand why the price went up, as they are precious little creations and so much talent and skill must go into making each one of them. I really can't recommend this artist enough! A must have for your collection of tiny things!!

About

Hand Made Glass Curiosities

In Kiva's workshop, molten glass drips like honey through the air. A flick of the fingers, a turn of the wrist; and a tiny pitcher is born from this fluid and mercurial medium.
Rows upon rows of candy-colored glass tubing and rods await their turn to be transformed into unique artifacts to adorn your home, your body and your world.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Kiva Ford's passion with glass began early in life, and was anchored with his college degree in Scientific Glassblowing. Through years of work creating complex glass instruments for scientist's use, he has perfected his precision and technique in manipulating glass.

Beyond the scientific community, Kiva is more commonly known for his exquisite glass goblets, bottles, pendants and vessels. Kiva's artistic work is influenced by his interests in history, mythology, and the natural world. His creations span from delicate pendants and tiny vases to large, elaborate bottles encasing glass animals, figures, and even smaller versions of themselves!

His works have been featured in The New York Times, Time Out New York, PBS's "Craft in America" series, and in art galleries and boutiques throughout the country.
