Magnetic Necklace Charm

A friend of mine here had this really super cool necklace where you can change out the charm on it via magnet. When I first saw it, I immediately fell in love, I mean really, THE POSSIBILITIES!  

So naturally, I had to see if I could make something similar. 


I was in Vegas when I decided to make these, so I didn't have all my supplies.  I normally would have glued something to the bottle caps to make them into necklaces, but instead I popped two holes in them using a nail and a hammer.

I then strung the string through.  

Next I used some round stickers that were in some scrapbooking book my mom gave me while I was in town.  You could use anything though, any kind of paper or sticker you like.  Because it's a sticker, it sticks real easy to the magnet.

And then, wait for it, you put the magnet on the bottle cap.  It's AMAZINGLY simple and so freaking cute!  THE POSSIBILITIES! (See my Stitch Fix shirt?  It' looks pretty good right?)

Lucy wanted to show off the necklace too, so I changed out the magnet for a little swirly thing I made out of some polymer clay. Needless to say she was in love!
