Bottle Caps

My local pub has kindly collected a sizeable bunch of bottle caps for me to create recycled art accessories with, these are my (very) early experiments:

I'm quite keen on turning the rims down by hand but have yet to perfect the technique, but I've also got to work on creating holes for findings (my plan is to produce pendants, key-rings and maybe some magnets) and settle on a finishing/varnish method. 

Once I'm happy with the overall look of the cap I'll turn my attention to the images inside - I've got a feeling the miniatures I produce will be quite intricate and involve cross-hatching...
