Bottlecap jewelry is becoming very popular these days because this type of jewelry is easy to make and inexpensive. In fact, you can make a beautiful necklace in less than five minutes for less than $2.00 with our Resin Dome Pendant Necklace Kit.
Step One: Gather Supplies
- One Resin Dome Pendant Necklace Kit (includes pendant tray for 1 inch circles, resin dome sticker, and matching 24″ ball chain necklace)
- One inch circle images for pendant
- 1 inch circle craft punch (optional)
Make or get Craft Circles
TIP: If you make your own craft circles, besure the outside border or image on your craft circle extends slightly larger than an inch to avoid the paper showing through.
Step Two: Affix the Craft Circle to the Resin Dome
I used a one inch craft circle punch that I picked up at Walmart
TIP: Hold the resin dome with at least three fingers, and you’ll be able to position your craft circle perfectly! Just wiggle the craft circle slightly left and right as you lower it between the fingers that are gripping the resin dome. Your three fingers will guide the craft circle into the correct position. Perfect every time!
What if you don’t have a Craft Punch?
No worries. Just place the resin dome directly on the craft circle and cut it out as shown below:
Step 3: Glue the resin dome to the pendant tray
Now just attach the dome and circle to the pendant tray. You can use any glue that attaches to both paper and metal. I used E6000 because it’s super strong and available almost everywhere, including department and craft stores.
Cover the entire back of the craft circle with glue and press it into the tray.
