nautical round + round necklace | the twinery

As you may know, I've been moving my work space to my big girl Studio up in our sunroom. In the process, I've found a few crafting goodies that have made me want to play more and clean up less. You may remember the popularity of the bottle cap necklaces that were all the rage a while ago...well, I'm here to remind you that they're still around and they're still fun, especially when you add some swirly loops of Red Shimmer baker's twine from The Twinery.

Gather your supplies and get crafty!

  1. Apply Glossy Accents to the inside of the bottle cap.
  2. Beginning at and outside point, wind your Red Shimmer Metallic baker's twine round and round until you get to the middle. 
  3. Thread some red and blue beads on to your jewelry wire and adhere to the necklace shank.
  4. Add a new necklace shank to the opposite side with your E-6000.
  5. Go round and round with your Glossy Accents on top of your Red Shimmer twine to reinforce and to add more shine. Don't worry, it doesn't spoil the shine of the shimmer twine at all.
  6. Trim four lengths of Red Shimmer twine and tie a simple knot to close...reinforcing the nautical theme. 

You'll notice that I added even more shimmer and shine by using the hole that was already there {see it at the bottom} and would normally be used to thread your necklace through, to dangle some small stones and added a jewelry shank to the back of the bottle cap for my "chain" of Red Shimmer baker's twine. * sentence

Be sure to go "meet" the rest of the TEN new offerings and see what projects come to mind that you could combine with some older items in your stash.

  1. THis is so cool! I know the feeling of wanting to play instead of clean...doing it myself these days! TFS.
