Bad Beer Behavior Ring

Every jewelry artist must make a ring from a bottle cap. We didn't make that up. That's just the rules. Look it up. We think this tradition got started with Michelangelo or someone.
Anyway, we're not ones to break the rules,so early in our careers we did a beer bottle cap ring too. Except we had to get the cap the hard way.
There is a very famous bar in San Francisco that is renowned for serving 101 imported beers. This seemed like nothing less than a challenge to us. Like the Mount Everest of beer. Would it be possible to drink all 101 beers? We were going to find out.
When we came to in Santa Cruz, our friends informed us that we had made it to #54 on the list. This bottle cap along with several other objects had tangled itself up in John's long hair. We could do nothing less than make this memento of really bad beer behavior. Its the rules.

A modern metalsmith/metal artist can be found working in traditional metals as well as in nontraditional materials. The designs can range from the classic to the extravagant, and the techniques can either be centuries old or decidedly current.

The wide range of expression preferences, design options, materials, and processes has lead within our field to unfavorable misconceptions, misunderstandings and in some cases even outright disdain between artists. Can the metal and jewelry field overcome its division and send out a much-needed signal?

We appreciate and respect our historical past and acknowledge that current materials have a rightful place in jewelry/object making!
