I hope my last minute hasty photos to get these up here don't hinder my chances.  I will add better ones if I can later.  I've been working all week and have made nearly 50 bottle cap earrings for a yard sale I'm doing this weekend to help fund my move!  This is a whole serious I did based on words Smiley

How hard are they to make?
They seem quite professionally done - have you made a lot of them? That is, have you made them previously to this lot of 50.

Thanks! This is only the second time I've used words but I make bottle cap earrings and sell them on etsy.  This was my first time really cranking them out as I'm attempting to move cross country so I figured I'd use up my whole bottle cap collection and try to sell them rather than traveling with a shoe box of bottle caps!

I would LOVE these as stitch markers with crochet hook sizes on e.g. 4mm, 4.5mm

Thanks for all the positive feedback:)

Wicked! Smiley how did u make them

I cut the words out of a 90s magazine advertisement and used sealer to attach them to the bottle caps.  Next I drilled small holes at the top of each one and added a fish hook!
