Default Bottlecap Jewelry ?

I bought some metal adjustable rings to make bottle cap rings out of. I have tried several time to glue the bottle cap on the ring using the glue gun. My problem is that they stick on for a little while but then snap off of the ring. Should I be using some other form of glue to adhere the bottle cap to the ring?

I would use some sort of jewelry adhesive or E6000.

I have a hard time getting hot glue to hold most metal things.

I had a thought last night...what if I took a felt circle and hot glued it to the back of the bottle cap then glue the ring to the felt. Im not sure how that would look but it might work. Maybe i will try that too! I bought like 50 rings & I have a million recycled bottle caps.

It never hurts to scuff the metal with some scotch bright pad or sandpaper where you would like to put glue or adhesive gives it more places for the glue to get into and stick better.
