j'adore street trash bottle caps.

i have trained my whole family to pick them up for me.
before she left for college miss mango was always emptying them outta her pockets for me after school.

today i sketched out a quick idea for a bottle cap bracelet, something just for me.
no one else would want it... it's anti loot.

these are a pair of bottle caps i riveted awhile ago and have been wondering what to do with them next. all they each need is another riveted hole at the bottom to hold a festive colored freshwater pearl dangle.

a bracelet will take about a 30 of them - clatter, clatter, clatter.

This was both funny and exhilarating!
I love getting the rare glimpse into another artists sketch book, it is always so inspiring.

Are you familiar with Susan Lenart-Kazmer?
If not, you would love her style. I certainly do!

Thank you for visiting my blog, it is so nice to "meet" someone new!
