Bottle Cap Necklace Tips & Tricks:
- After gluing an image to the TOP of the bottle cap lay the bottle cap on a flat surface and press around the edges as the glue dries. Bottle caps are ever so slightly curved near the edges and this will form the epoxy dot to this curve.
- When printing an image to adhere to the TOP of a bottle cap choose lighter weight photo paper with a gloss, semi gloss or matte finish. The thinner paper will give less resistence in adhering to the slight dome towards the edge of the bottle cap.
- Use a split ring instead of a jump ring for making children's jewelry pendants as they allow for more wear and tear.
- Rub a colored alchohol ink on the surface of a distressed black bottle cap to give it a unique look with some dimension. Kind of like those colored acid washed jeans that I used to wear in Junior High!?!
- If you'd like to shorten your ball chain necklace just get some scissors and clip it to the desired length.
