Altered bottle caps + new ATC's

For a long time I have been interested in altered items, especially altered bottle caps! Now finally I had a go myself:

When I send out a swap on for example swap-bot I like to treat my swap partners with something extra :) So, for my first 2 altered bottle caps I decided to make my partners a modified bottle cap with the first letter of their name on :) The letters were made in clay and incorporated into the bottle cap + some furnishings. The left one is a key hanger and the right one is magnetic.

Then I decided to make some earrings for myself:

The idea I had was that the bottle caps should be exchangeable. So, the bit that goes trough your ear is attached to one of those typical bracelet locks which you can than lock onto your bottle cap. So whenever you want you can take off the cap and put another one on it. I am very happy with the outcome. I first thought that they would be to big for being earrings, however, they do look wonderful so I will wear them tomorrow :) and make some more :) So; to be continued!

I've also made some new ATC's for different swaps:

    Wat leuk zeg die bottle caps. Geduldig werk lijkt me.
    Degene die ze gaan ontvangen zullen er zeker blij verrast me zijn. Toppie!

  2. The bottle cap earrings are soooo cute. And the raised letters on the others are pretty cool. The atc's are lovely as well, especially those violets.
    I'm following you now. Hope you'll follow on mine as well.
