Bottle cap necklace

You can't really see them in this photograph but around the edges of the Gibson girl image there are microbeads in matching color and a super light dusting of glitter. I cut the image from sheets that I had previously made for jewelry that I've made in the past. I had most of the other parts on hand, the jump rings, glue, bottle caps and chain but I had to run out to the hardware store to buy a part to fit the tiny drill bit I needed to drill a hole small enough. The bottle cap is a retro Nehi Red Soda pop top and I'm wearing it now!

I love the Nehi necklace - I'll have to look out for vintage bottlecaps now!
