A whole bunch I have done up. I am seriously addicted.
First up Bottle Caps!

Zombie Fingers! These are made of polymer clay and are handpainted!

And the ever so classic skeleton hands!

Those are pretty cool.  The only thing is that I think you made your chains too long.  The clip is supposed to keep your sweater on with out buttoning it.  Basically your chain should only be long enough to reach the two sides of the sweater, at about the distance you are wearing it, with no slack in the chain.  Does this make sense?  Other than that, Good Job!

These are awesome! I have a whole slew of bottle caps that I have been trying to decide what I am going to do with them.

roccstarr75- Yeah I actually measured mine off some of my old sweater clips I have. If you were to wear your sweater just on your shoulders and not actually have your arms through, they work great, like this they are more for decoration though. A few are a little too long though but I kinda dig it with the extra slack.

Rylizbeth- On the bigger clips I use alligator clips. On the bottle caps I use the clips you use for like a work ID badge. They are small enough to fit in the cap and big enough that you can open then from inside the lips of the cap.
