Fall in Love with Making a Bottle Cap Ring

How to make a bottle cap ringI love wearing rings. It’s one of those times when I can see and enjoy a piece of jewelry that I’m wearing. It’s a little hard to do that with earrings unless you’re super flexible. Here’s the cool part. You can get a blank ring that has the bottle cap already attached. Then, you add resin.

It doesn’t get any easier than that.

To make your bottle cap ring, you’re going to need a bottle cap ring finding.

Finding? Like I didn’t know I lost anything.

Yeah. It’s a weird term that I have no explanation for where it came from. But findings is a catch-all term for empty or unused jewelry pieces before you use them. Like jewelry pendants and glue-on bails are also jewelry findings.

Step 1: Get your bottle cap ring

We don’t sell these in our store, but you can get them here. It’s the same one I’m using.

Step 2: Color the resin

adding pearl ex to resin

To make this ring, I used mixed, leftover from a different project.

Pro tip:  Any clear resin will work.  I wanted the resin base to have some color, so I mixed in Reflex Violet pearl ex powder.  A little powder goes a long way.

Step 3:  Fill the ring with resin

Carefully pour the epoxy resin into the bottle cap bezel. You’re not going to need much.

Pro tip: Your ring needs to sit flat, otherwise your resin won’t cure level. I cut a slit from an old food container to set the ring into.

Step 4:  Embellish the surface

To give some visual interest you can add beads, stickers, or other cute stuff once the resin is partially cured. I used crystals from the craft section of the dollar store. They are flat-backed and have an adhesive side.

Very carefully place the crystal stickers onto the semi-cured resin. (For this resin, it was about 2 hours after mixing. You will need to wait until the resin is like taffy, otherwise, your crystals will sink.)

Adjust the placement a tiny bit if necessary. Be careful with this step because if you introduce bubbles you won’t get them out once the resin is gel.

Now, let the resin cure.

Step 5:  Enjoy your finished bottle cap ring!
