Default Bottle Cap Necklace Questions

I have really had a lot of luck with my necklaces so far and they've been very popular at my school. I currently use two splits rings to attach the caps. One stays on the cap, and one on the ribbon, so that they can take the cap off and use the same ribbon to put other caps on. They seem to like that idea, the only problem I'm having is that the caps tend to turn around more when I do it like this. Anyone have any suggestions for something that would work better? I'm thinking about just using one ring on the cap and then double the ribbon and putting through the ring, then pulling the ribbon back up through the loop of the ribbon kind of like a slip knot.

I have about 30 to make over the weekend to fill orders and need to make more to put in a consignment shop in town with my bows.

I just use one jump ring, and that is attached to the bottlecap. If they want to change the bottlecap, just pull off the necklace (I use ball chain) and then put on another bottle cap that has a jump ring on it.

I use ribbon instead of ball chains. I use the same split rings to attach the ribbon to the clasp, so the caps don't come off without the split rings being opened up.

I think I have this pictured in my mind how you are doing it... but couldn't you just use one split ring and still achieve the same effect and still be able to switch bottle caps - all they would have to do is add or remove the bottle cap on the one split ring that is already on the ribbon
