Bottle cap Necklace - Yeah Another One!


Morning All,

Yep I have been playing with bottle caps again, I love them, they're easy to use, they're cheap but I wanted them to be more than just a pendant. Yesterday I was over at the cafe with my Valentines version.

So i made up my bottle cap beads and played around with them, measured them up on a necklace.



Then I came up with this.




I have done multiple posts on how to make and attach the bottle caps see below, then I added some smaller beads.  

DIY Delight or Disaster? Well it's different but I'm not loving it, I see that they can be more that just a pendant however I'm not sure this layout is doing them a lot of justice. I think it's back to the drawing board.

Here are some projects past projects that I do love, using my bottle caps.



                                                        







I guess I've found my medium, I truly love my bottle caps, what is your favorite thing to craft with?

Thanks for reading,

Mel xo

  4. These came out good too. These could literally be made for most anyone. What music teacher wouldn't like this? I'm not very crafty. I do things w/the kids, but they don't care that I'm not good at the stuff. In public, I'd never get to pass 'Go.' ;)

  15. Your bottle cap projects look great! I always love seeing custom made jewelry, but probably something I'll ever do- my hands are too shaky and eyes too old for that tiny work. My favorite craft is transferring graphics onto wood and fabric. Easy and fast!
