Rocker - glam necklace for those who want, but don't have studs
I've seen a lot of bottle cap lockets on here, but none were bad-ass enough for me...

These bracelets I had (look at the first how-to picture) happened to have rhinestones that look a lot like studs, so I flipped 'em over and glued them down the wrong way :P This is yet another project that cost me absolutely NOTHING! I had everything in my house already (woo!)

If you have actual studs (or spikes... ooh ^.^), then use those if you want! Really, you can glue any type of charm/picture/design thingy to the bottle cap. So if you do a version, lemme see it! :D

This is really easy, so have fun and get creative with it! xD

  • How to make a bottle cap pendant. "Studded" Rhinestone Bottlecap Pendant - Step 1
    Step 1

    This is what I mean by a "Rhinestone link bracelet".

    I have SO MANY of these from when I was younger and I never wear them now, so this was a good use for them.

    Step 2

    Use your fingernails/pliers to loosen and pick out the rhinestones.

    I used about 20, but you can use less if you want.

    Take 'em out!

    Now get your bottle cap and flatten the edges out, so it sorta looks like a top hat/UFO :P

    Now curl the edges up just a bit.

    Now paint the middle of the bottle cap.

    Leave the bumpy outer bits plain, unless you really don't like the design on there.

    I found it looked a lot better if i put on a few layers on nail polish :)

    Really, at this point you could glue on any charm or number of beads or anything of that sort.

    Step 9

    Turn your rhinestones upside down (pointy side-up) and arrange them as you like.

    This is the glue I used. It's basically just super/crazy glue.

    Step 10

    Stick some glue to your rhinestone and place the first one closest to the centre as possible.
    This will make it easier to glue the other ones around it.

    Don't forget this stuff can dry fast! So place it in the right spot, because it's difficult to move!

    Adding them around starting from the centre...

    You can stop here if you like, but i wanted to fill it up :P

    I added one more "layer" of rhinestones after this picture, but my camera died.

    Superglue a jump ring to the top and put a chain through it - it's ready to wear!

    Enjoy! :D
