Default Bottle cap necklaces

I just ordered a bunch of Twilight bottle caps from sweetangles. (love her stuff!!)
I'm having her drill 1/2 of what I ordered to make them into necklaces. I've never made them before. Here is what I'm assuming I need. Let me know if I'm missing anything:

Bottle cap
cord or ribbon for necklace part
clasp for necklace
o-ring thing to put on the bottle cap itself to slide the ribbon/cord through

am I missing anything?

OH, is 3/8" ribbon to wide to use for these or do I need to use the 1/4"? I think I'm going to use ribbon for the necklace part as I've seen it used and it's cute and I already have it so that means one less thing to buy.

for the ribbon, I use the satin 1/4" or 1/8" (or together). I have found that the 3/8 doesn't allow for much room to slide around in the jump ring. Plus... the satin ribbon is 44 cents I think at walmart and 50 cents at the craft stores

Sealed bottle caps, bottle caps, scrapbooking

She sells the bottle caps. They are the best I've ever seen.

I order my caps from her too. I love the caps from there. I have not asked them to drill for me yet. Could you let me know how they turn out for you when you get them? Like are the holes in the top..

To answer your questions about what you need... I use split rings (that look like mini key chains) and then I have bought ball chains to put them on (like the group buy ones) the customer picks their cap(s) and then I put it on the chain before they leave. But you have to watch out for "sticky" little fingers since the caps are so small.
