Tutorial: Bottlecap Pendants



A tutorial for making resin-filled bottlecap pendants.

Apologies for the huge file, but it's quite a long process.
Lots of bottlecap pendants in my jewelry gallery.

Latest examples at [link] - you'll notice in that pic that the pearl bead pendant is full of bubbles - that's what happens if you don't heat / blow them out. In this case, I thought they looked quite pretty!

Once you're confident with your resin technique, you can try using it to make pendants out of vintage watch bezels. Examples at [link] and [link]
Practice on bottlecaps first, though, because if you mess up, you feel less guilty throwing them away!

You can make these into rings too, by mounting a bottlecap onto a ring blank - see [link]

I'm happy to answer any queries or explain parts of the process where the tutorial is unclear.

Cool! This gives me a bit of a 'Luna Lovegood'-feel. :D
