Steampunk Bottle Cap Necklace!

 Steampunk Bottle Cap Necklace!
You will need:
 Pendant Blanks Bezel Settings
J-B Weld PlasticWeld Epoxy Putty
Lisa Pavelka Steampunk Watch Parts
  Clear Point Back Rhinestones 

Let's begin!
Open the epoxy.
(I received this epoxy from JB Weld around Christmas time last year...I love it)
It comes in a tube...blue goo on the outside of white goo...it's like a pecan log.
 Just pull off a bit of it.
As much as you will end up needing...
 Knead to mix it together until the white and blue mix thoroughly.
  Then press the epoxy into your bezel,
Rounding the clay inside it.
Now add a variety of steampunk parts!
This is the totally fun and addicting part--trust me, you will want to make 20 of them!
I add jewels because they give it some sparkle!
Super cool.
Let it dry completely...it takes around 4 hours or so.
But smell it...if it still smells like a perm...let it dry longer.
The scent will completely leave when it's dry.
I love the juxtaposition of shiny new jewels and old metal cogs from watches!
Here's one my son did with no jewels...it still looks amazing!
This would be a fun birthday party craft for older kids!
The epoxy dries white!
They turned out fabulous!

I love JB-Weld Epoxy Putty!
I did the same technique on this Cape/Robe clasp too!
