Bottle Cap Art

I was a little surprised by the number of examples of bottle cap art that I found on the web.  I had expected this post to contain more of a variety of bottle cap items.  However, the sheer number of objects out there made it more practical to focus mainly on art.  Future posts will focus on other uses for bottle caps.

Unfortunately, the images don’t do these pieces justice.  Most of the images I found look like scans from magazines or catalogs.

John Petrey has a gorgeous collection of dresses made of bottle caps.  You’ll have to click to see as his site doesn’t allow sharing of photos.  It’s really too bad as I suspect not many of you will even notice this link.
