Centerpiece viewed from above.

I saw the ring of flasks glued together at Goodwill, and decided that I had to have it, since I once used flasks such as these in my work.  I assume the piece was used for arranging fresh flowers, but I hoped to find a way to use it with my sea glass. My first fill the flasks with sea glass of different colors...wasn't workable, because the necks of the flasks wouldn't allow any but the tiniest shards to pass through, and I didn't have sufficient numbers of tiny pieces of any but the most common colors. So, I decided to use elongated larger pieces of sea glass which would extend from the ends of the flask necks.  I then added a few small pieces of the same color as the neck piece to the insides of each flask.  A tea light candle, glass plate, wine glass, and votive holder that I'd bought previously at yard sales and thrift stores were used to complete the centerpiece.
