New Bracelets

Since it was Memorial Day weekend and all kinds of sales were going on I went to Michael's to pick up some craft goodies. While I was there I wanted to make a bracelet using bottle caps so I picked up a couple of bracelet chains and cool charms to add to my bracelets.

I flatten the bottle caps first than used alcohol inks in latte and copper to paint the caps to match the chain. I took some of my vintage belly dance photos, pages from an old book, some rhinestones and pieces from a watch to decorate the bottle caps. I used crystal lacquer to adhere the photos and embellishments to the bottle caps. Using jump rings I attached the bottle caps and charms to the bracelet chain and presto a beautiful piece of wearable art!
