Default Magnetic Bottlecaps

Ok, there was a kid in my mom's church last night with a choker necklace with a magnetic bottlecap on it. She could change out her bottlecap to match her mood/outfit. I have seriously been thinking about doing these for the past month. Do any of you ladies currently offer these? If so, have you had any success? Are they overly complicated?
TIA for answering my questions.

I make these for craft shows and I also make them to sell to fellow crafters. They are my best sellers! People love looking at all the bottlecaps and kids love trading with friends, etc!

I live in a small area but I sell my chokers for $1 each and my bottlecaps for $1 each. I know some people sell them for more! I also offer a special 6 chokers/bottlecaps for $5.

I sell the chokers if you are needing any...I sell them for 25 each without the washer...if you need washers I can offer those too!

Hope that helps!

Sarah

I know this is probably a stupid question, but what are the washers for? I do bottle caps for hair bows and recently had some interests for necklaces, but had no idea how to do it. Any advice would be much appreciated!

I havent made any with a magnet, but I do make necklaces. I just started making them not to long ago so I havent sold any at shows yet, but the neighbor kids and family seem to be stealing them almost as fast as I can make them so I am super excited to see how well they do at my next show

My mom mentioned that I make bottle caps and now the ladies at the church are wanting some for next years' VBS. I really am gonna have to get on the stick and figure out how to do these soon. Also, my little cousins for Christmas presents.

[email protected] stealing as fast as you make them. Hmmmm...could be the next "Silly Bandz" lol

I put the magnet on the washer and then leave the bottle caps as is. Sticks WONDERFULLY, and for some reason, isn't as bulky.

They girls made them for GS camp and LOVED THEM! The cap did fall off but it may be that the magnet wasn't strong enough. There are all sorts of tutorials on here for these.
