You can make an interesting range of dolls house scale bottles, flagons, and flasks by searching out combinations of beads. For the best bond, use two part epoxy glues to hold metal and glass beads together. If the piece will not be handled very much, you may be able to get away with model cement or similar clear drying glues, E6000 and Bond 527 or Beacon 527, all of which are slightly 'rubbery' cements which dry clear. Test your glue on a hidden section of your beads if you are not sure what the bead is made of. Many glues will dissolve plastic, and some paints used for and on beads.

The containers shown above are all made from simple combinations of beads and are intended for use on a shelf display in an alchemist's shop.
