Bottlecap Pendants

I had so much fun putting together these totally unique and cute bottlecap pendants. They can be worn as necklaces or used as key chains. It doesn't really matter how you use them, the point is how fun they are to make! 

I really enjoyed adding rhinestone crystals on top of my designs, along with beads dangling on the bottom. Most of the words are cut out from magazines, but the Ireland cap was cut from a map. I would suggest using a 1" circle hole punch for the background image, but after that, use whatever paper elements you have to personalize your creations. Magic Moonlight Studio has free printable images they may also inspire you.

Stay tuned for the workshop dates & times!

New Items from Sultana's Crochet!

Sultana's Crochet - one of my favorite Etsy sites for crocheted accessories, hats, scarves, wraps and shawls, has a new item on their menu: crocheted bracelets! All the items are made in a smoke free, allergy-free environment and use natural materials like hemp, leather, copper and glass. I recently purchased a turquoise wrap bracelet, similar to the yellow one below, which is easy to wear and layer with other pieces. Check out her shop for more items!
