So I had a few comments and several emails I decided to go ahead with it... not that it is difficult at all, sorry bout the photos i was using my phone as camera has died on me!!!
so here goes
Diamond glaze, 1 inc cirlce puch, bottle cap, 2 8mm jump rings, 3 6mm jump ring, choice of beads, 16inc ball chain, cuttlebug or other die cutting machine (ie sizzix) round nose pliers, 3 head pins, hammer small nail, image of your choice.
start by flatterning your bottle cap by running it through the cuttlebug machine, use your normal b plates run through once to flatten
Take your hammer and small nail and gently place a hole at the top and the bottom of the bottle cap... directly above/below each other
set to the side and gather your head pins, beads and round nose pliers... this bit can take a bit of practice but is easy once you get the hang of it.
place your choice of beads on the three head pins , i usually do one or two on each depending on the design... hold the head pin slightly above the bead
the using your other hand pull the head pin down over the pliers towards you and push back under the pliers
twist the headpin clockwise arounbd the actual body of the headpin 3 times or until it reaches the bead and is nice and tight
attatch all three to a 6mm split ring
Add the two 8mm jump rings to the hole you made in the bottlecap earlier.. one at the top and one at the bottom
attatch your three beaded charms to one of the jump rings and seal back together tightly
now use your 1 inc circle punch and puch out the patternd paper or design of your choice (etsy have thousand of design for as little as $2- try cupcakecuties)
glue into the centre of your bottle cap and cover in diamond glaze being careful for it not to spill over the edges
add your chain once dry and hey presto a cute little charm neclace to cheer even the most miserable person up haha .
Hope this works for you people that asked..... now for your chance to win a kit with enough stuff to make 3 bottle caps... leave a comment below adn il pick a winner next week
