Swimming in bottlecaps

While I may not end up with as many as this guy (Günter Offermann, who has 103,000 bottle caps in his collection, making him the world record holder for most bottle caps owned by a person), I'm getting a whole bunch of bottle caps... :) Julie, who makes mosaics when she isn't making the cutest monkey jewelry in the world, offered me a bunch of bottle caps when she saw my bottle cap belts at the Fremont Market. Since I've gotten a couple of custom orders for belts and have been making more for the Punk Rock Flea Market, I'm taking her up on her offer.

I also decided that I should buy some bottle caps from glittersniffer (partially because I love her Etsy name!), to give me a whole bunch of variety in my bottle caps. From what I can identify in the photos, it looks like I will be getting a lot of Canadian beer bottle caps from glittersniffer, which will contrast nicely with the likely American bottle caps that I will get from Julie. So I will be all set to make a whole bunch more bottle cap belts! Hurrah! :)

(Oh yeah, I suppose I may need some more belts, eventually... :) )
