This started out as a hobby-and one day I went into a local bar and asked if they had any bottle caps lying around I could snag. They handed me a 5 gallon bucket full of them! I started making necklaces and earrings for myself and friends. All the bottle caps are hand hammered and punctured with a hole for the pendant/earring jump hoop. All sharp edges and puncture holes are filed down with a metal file. The caps are banged up,slightly irregular in shape with some minor scratches and dents, and some are rusty. This is the way I intend them to look-urban, natural, and each one an individual. They are strung on metal wire, filled with beads, and each end is secured with double crimping beads to hold the toggle clasp in place.
