This necklace was meant to be made with a glass cabochon, I didn't have any on hand and really wanted to try this project so I decided to use a domed a beer cap to use instead. I couldn't be happier with the finished piece.

For my second try at this project I dapped a circle I cut from an antique tin. It's to bad the photo doesn't pick up the texture of the tin because it has a bit of a pebbled feel to it. The original project
didn't have anything hanging off the bottom but as you know from past projects it would be like sending something off naked without dangles. This one is held together with rivets instead of the sewing method and the simplicity of it is perfect with the busy tin picture.
