Watching this makes me sad, when I think of all the bottle caps I've thrown out over the years. I will never throw another bottle cap in the garbage again. Thank you.

Thank you for fixing video. That is really cool how you made coke beads with rounding tools. where can I purchase the rounding tools? I think I am going to make some of these beads. I have decades of saving different soda pop and beer caps. I cant wait to make some of the older tops like mnt dew, a&w, pepsi, ect. Thank you for sharing idea on instructables. Well done my friend.

Looks awesome! What specific solder and soldering paste did you use? I've been meaning to work on my soldered jewelry but need the right supplies :)

Here's a picture. I got it at the Home Depot. Also, here's a link to the my first soldering project which talks little more about the process.

Sweet! Thanks for the pic!

Just a note, so far I see @ least 3 persons trying to find icon to click on to watch video. I have been trying for 10 minutes to find something to click on to see video. I click on icons all the time to watch the videos. this instructable does not have an icon. is this a glitch or is there something I am missing? Please help to figure out what is going on. thanks! p.s nice picture at the begining though.
