You are a wonderful artist!  I never would have thought of putting ipctures in bottle caps....but even if I had it wouldn't have done much good since I'm not an artist like you are!  Sorry but I can't just pick one....I have two favorites....the bird and the strawberries.  You did a wonderful job on them all!

I love the bird!  I made some bottlecap necklaces that were similar,but filled mine with resin.  Did you fill yours with anything?  Mine got a little cloudy, wondered if the resin was really necessary?

Did you paint those designs, or use some kind of transfers?
They look great!

i started out by filling them w/ mod podge but, it got bubbly and u couldn't see the image so now i just paint a few layers over the picture.

& thanks everyone for your nice comments

The best thing I have found to use is Paper Glaze.  Its not the easiest to find, but I have had great luck with it lasting for years.  As you can see by my avatar, I make and sell tons of bottlecap jewelry.
