These are a couple of bottle cap crosses I just made.  The red one  has images from lotteria cards and the orange one is a woman theme;both have mirrors in the middle cap.   I'm not so much into the bling as the images (I have spent many hours looking for little images in mags!)  and am currently working on a favorite artist paintings one (for myself) and a pictorial milagro one (pics of eyes,arms legs etc.)  I would love feedback-I worry that maybe they are too plain?


Thanx for lookin!

I think those are lovely, and I especially like the first one. Did you just push in the edges of the bottle caps? (Sorry, don't have my glasses Smiley )

the crosses are from the $1 bin at Micheals (wood) though I hope to make some out of the scrap wood I have.  I kind of like how skinny these ones are.  I bent back the edges of the bottle caps with flat nose pliers- wicked blisters.  I'm making some to consign at an art store in my town.  Thanks for all your comments!
