Recycle, Reinvent in Glass

I just cannot make myself give over my used glass items to the recycle bin to be smashed to bits when there is a bit of beauty left to create with.  This frosted glass was once a part of a bath set from a Christmas long ago.  Ordinary household bleach will remove the oils that dull the glass frost and bring it back to it's full beauty, then I added a bit of clear resin dripping down it's sides so you can peek inside the jar to see the gemstones placed there.  This one has a beautiful glass Angel on the top to hold the magic inside and is waiting for someone to rescue it from my storage closet.
