WHEN LIFE GIVES YOU BOTTLE CAPS…

9-Painted Caps

I learned how to make these bottle cap charms from my good friend, Thom Wilder.  He creates some of the most incredible hand-made jewelry I’ve ever seen.  Follow OilCanTommy on Instagram to see his work.

I use regular bottle caps…

And pound them with a hammer until they are flat…

2-Smashing Caps

Then I torch them to remove all the paint…

4-Torching Caps

They will look like this…

7-Raw Caps

Then I paint them with enamel paint…

Once they are baked in the oven, they are ready to be attached to my candles…

GOOD FRIDAY…

Beauty BeachSunshine and I get up early every Friday morning and head down to Treasure Island Beach in Laguna to go for a walk before work.

Yesterday was beautiful.  We got there at about 6:15am and had the beach to ourselves.  So peaceful…
