These are lovely! But what do you do with them? I would put them on necklaces.

Cute! Hey did you ever get the deer one to work as a pendant or was it giving you trouble?

I did finally find a solution for the deer charm! I got round bails and glued them to the backs of the charms that wouldn't fit in my vise. It obscures the design on the bottlecap, but works perfect for a necklace!

I have a bottle cap sitting right in front of me, which is looking really plain right about now. These look really effective, what a great way to display an image.

These are all cute ^.^  I want to take some out of my monitor and keep them!

Also for all the resin people:  I work with it all the time for my bottlecap things and it works fine.  I use the Colores Doming system.  It has the lest chance to have air bubbles compared to others I have used.  It's also easier to mix since it is a 1:1 ratio.  I've never had a problem with fumes, and I have worked with it in my bathroom with only the fan for ventilation (not recommended, I now work in my garage)
Though a glue or something would be a bit easier because there is no need to mix.

When in doubt, use more glue!

Hi all,

I've just come home with a bag of bottle caps after seeing the Capsters book in a shop this morning. 

Vegebrarian, if you're still obsessed and still haven't been able to do something with your Little Deer cap, have you tried hot gluing a brooch pin to the back? Any craft store should carry them and then you can wear it!

And if you don't like the designs on the caps and don't want to paint them, most supermarkets or brewery supply places will sell plain crown caps designed for home brewing. That's what I did because I don't drink alcohol, and in Australia where I am soft drink bottles are all screw top. My issue is being down under I don't have as much access to charms etc that I can put in them, but a local jewellery store sells stud earrings with plastic/fimo animals etc on them so I'm just going to pry them off the posts and play with them until I can find something else. Super inspired!
