Oh gosh these are great. I love the idea of making a collection of them and working a theme. I'd love to see a variety of birds or maybe a pendant for every zodiac sign. Your seahorse is incredible, so maybe an underwater theme!

I love how creative that is! Maybe do people like pet portraits if you can do that animal, like for example, I ask for two bottle caps, one with my dog Ruth's head in it (as fitting a whole dog body in a bottle cap would be hard unless they're curled into a ball) And one with my dog Naomi, you could do em in all pink clay or colored and charge for em or you could make things like a wishing star, a fairy, festive stuff, like Halloween themed or what not bottle caps, just little things your friends like and what not, Do different kinds of birds, more underwater or nature themed ones, maybe put a sun/moon yin yang thing in one, two opposing elements, Like I'm in color guard, do something to represent that, or Band, Music or dance, Drama, the arts.. there's alot I could think of to help ya out, if you want more ideas, shoot me a message and I'll help in any way I can!

These are very pretty, and I love the details you put into such a small space! Smiley

I love them all!!!

at first I thought the hairless rats were pigs (they were taken farther away, they were pink, and I didn't see the tails or details yet.  sue me), but that would be a cute idea!  little piggies curled up in bottle caps!  Grin  my aunt would TOTALLY need one of them too.  Wink  kitties, small dogs, different birds, mice, candles...anything!  if you can sculpt it that small, ANYTHING can go in there!

These are mind-blowing! So much detail in such a tiny space, I don't know how you do it. Just gorgeous!
As to what else to do - how about faces?

These are so great. I would love to see a version of the elements in color, whether with colored clay or painted. I love the idea of scenes like that--maybe you can make a little skyline in a bottle cap! Definitely more animals too Smiley

these are lovely--love your use of monochromatic neutral clay to really highlight the texture and details. how to you affix the hardware to make into a pendant: drill into the bottle cap? glue in eyepin?
