I think that looks great.  I've been making bottle cap jewelry for my daughters for a few weeks now.  We play lots of poker at our house, and everyone brings lots of stuff to drink, so I insist they leave the bottle caps in a big tub.  Its really fun to go through them.  I have to be careful to get caps that don't actually say "beer" on them anywhere (school ya know).  Magic Hat Brewery has these really cool caps that are black with a gold spiral and a red star right in the middle.  Smirnoff Ice (I think) has different colored caps for different flavors, and it has some kind of bird thing on it.  Since their school color is blue and their mascot is the Skyhawk, I made some blue ones for spirit week.  They tell me their friends are always finding them in the hallways to see what kinds of new earrings they are wearing.  I've made pencil eraser earrings, big shiny chrome colored jacks from the dollar store, ear buds...  Now my daughters don't just see junk.  They look at stuff in a whole new way.

Plus it is a good way to take out your frustrations, pounding away at the anvil...

Great job!

i know what you mean about the whole school not appreciating beer caps, i used to get in trouble for that back in high school when i made pins out of them too Tongue. i mean its not my fault beer bottles have cool caps that you can find everywhere. thats a cool idea to make them for your kids spirt week and its totally cool that they now look at things differently. 
and yes, super fun to beat the crap out of a bottle cap when angry Grin
