Item details

Hand-Selected, 24 Bottle Caps, recycled, used

Bottle caps are approx 1" "round"--however, used and discarded bottle caps are almost always slightly irregular, unless they are twist off--in which case, they are usually uniform in shape.

Bottlecaps pictured are examples only.

Special requests accepted, message me before you order, to verify current inventory.

I have to hand select each order, so please feel free to tell me how you are going to use the bottle caps--so that I can best select for you from my current inventory.

I mostly have available beer bottle caps, and some soda, twist-off caps and mostly bottle-opener "popped off" bottle caps (that have bends in the caps, pokes to the cap, etc). I do not include plastic bottle caps or oversized.

I don't often have on hand as many really tarnished, rusty/erroded, really flat bottle caps (like, to use as shingles on a birdhouse roof), so one great tip that I have--is if you need a lot of used, tarnished/rusty, flat bottle caps, you can either hammer the caps flat, or lay out the caps into the street curb/driveway/alley/parking lot, and gently drive over them--back and forth. Then, put the caps into a container, submerged in vinegar, for over night (or several nights). When you pull out the caps from the vinegar, lay them on a towel to fully dry before you use them (or, put them into a sock, rubber band the sick shut really well, and tumble in the clothes dryer with a full load of darks). If you leave the rust on the caps, they'll continue to rust and tarnish.

Used bottle caps are available:
- by quality of shape: more round, aged, irregular, flattened, bent in half or bent edges
- by specific color or range of colors,
- by brand/s, labels or designs/text in caps
- or, a mix of any of the above.

Bottle caps are typically made from aluminum, and make GREAT necklace pendants, resin pendants, soldered pendants, doll hats, bottle cap art--the possibilities are endless. I have personally become quite addicted to turning recycled bottle caps into collaged works of wearable art (see my cart for domed and soldered bottle caps that I've made, and some resin pendants that I've made using bottle caps as the bezel).

>> If you order by a color and don't indicate any other preference, I'll best match to that color. HOWEVER, your order may contain bottle caps with your color choice AND other color/s.

If you select by newer vs. older/tarnished and don't specify your desired use (bottle cap art portraits may be easier with flattened caps, whereas resin bottle cap pendants work better with mostly round, unflattened shapes)--I'll do my best to select mostly round.

Keep in mind that the older caps often are scratched up, with some rust, and may or may not be perfectly round--as they have been discarded--walked on, driven on, tossed around, outside/weathered, etc. from over the years.

If you need a custom selection of say, a minimum of 2 each per brand (because you are making earrings, for example)--please message me in the order, or in a follow-up email.

Ironically, I have found that purple is NOT a commonly-used color in bottle cap manufacturing, so I don't usually carry purple. (Nee-Hi soda bottle caps are purple).

>> ALSO NOTE: my supplies fluctuates a lot. If your order is URGENT, or is needed in less than 10 days, you must specify this in your order--because, if I need time to get in stock more caps to tailor your order, I may hold onto your order for up to 10 days--which means that you'd receive your shipment within 14 days or so.

PLEASE message me or check for messages from me, and respond, as I prioritize your special requests. THANK YOU!!!
