Bottle Cap Jewelry

One thing it seems I always have alot of is bottle caps. Normally I’m not Captain Planet, but throwing away every cap I use would equal a ton of caps. So when I first decided that was alot of metal to chuck I went to Deanna who writes Green Glancy. Turns out even she couldn’t find much useful info on what to do with used bottle caps. The cool thing is Deanna also writes a blog called Recycled Lovelies. Turns out she’s amazingly crafty. Some of the clothing items she’s made are just awesome.

So after Deanna sent me some links for recycling bottle caps I asked her if she wanted some caps for her crafts. Turns out she did, so I took my less mangled ones and sent them her way. I’m not sure what all she’s made with those caps, but a couple days ago she sent me a link to a website that has bottle cap jewelry. At first I wasn’t much interested. Most bottle cap jewelry I’ve seen are just caps strung onto a necklace or bracelet. This site though showed bottle caps turned into beads. In fact their jewelry looks cool. If only I could figure out how to make my caps into round pieces like those Heine ones.

    I have a friend who makes the round beads like these but they won’t reveal their secret…they just say they make them very carefully 😛
