When I saw this item on etsy, I was very impressed on the how well the bottle caps were used. I couldn’t wait and wanted to make something similar. Unfortunately, I didn’t have the material(flattened bottle caps,epoxy,stamps etc) used to make these beautiful and unique charms.
Step 1 : Using nail and hammer create a hole to the beer cap. Most of the bottle caps have plastic sealer/liner, you need to take it off as we would be baking these with polymer clay. It takes little time but don’t worry if you are not able to get all of it out.
Step 2: You can use a jewelry eye pin. I used floral wire, cut into aprox 5 inch length and using round nose pliers made similar to eye pin and insert to the cap. Cut off any excess wire. If you don’t have nose pliers, you can use skewers or toothpick.
Step 3: Using the scrap polymer clay fill the caps making sure it is covered well without any gaps. To remove fingerprints and to get a texture I used a kitchen towel and rubbed over it.
It can be a great handmade gift for Christmas or a friend who loves to wine!!
Have a great day!!
