Alcohol Ink Pendants – How To Make Them

  • by

Make beautiful ‘Moon Glow’ alcohol ink pendants using kitchen tin foil.

Alcohol ink pendants are my latest arty happening!

After seeing someone online doing crafty things with ordinary tin foil, I thought it would be fun to try and make some jewellery using that technique.

My previous post was also about using alcohol inks – you can find it by clicking here.

I have been making bottle cap necklaces for years and so I was inspired to use the bottle caps I have in my stash of resources to create some alcohol ink pendants.

To help you create your own alcohol ink pendants, I have made a YouTube video.

There is another video here showing another selection of alcohol ink pendants I made.

To create the alcohol ink pendants
I have designed, you will need:

  • Ordinary heavy duty kitchen foil
  • Alcohol inks in several colours
  • Alcohol Blending Solution
  • Craft bottle caps
  • A tool to punch a hole in the bottle cap
  • One 9 mm split ring per pendant
  • Some stringing material
    (I used an 18 inch curb chain)
  • Some Diamond Glaze
  • Some tacky glue 

So easy to make
and perfect for
giving or selling.

Below are the alcohol inks I used to tint the foil for the pendants.

I ordered them online from

Update 2024 – Keep On Crafting is now, sadly, closed.

Keep on Crafting had a brilliant range of colours in stock but unfortunately the owner had to close down.

I also used the alcohol blending solution and the Diamond Glaze from Keep On Crafting. I have been using Diamond Glaze to attach the glass overlays to my bottle cap pendants for years. 

After trying many other glues, I found Diamond Glaze is the one that works the best for me.

The EuroPunch Pliers (from Amazon) will
easily punch a 1.8mm hole in your bottle caps.

I have had mine for a couple of years and have still 
not had to replace the punch pin, even though I
have pierced hundreds of bottle caps.

Black bottle caps (on Amazon) often come with
sticky resin domes.

Resin is fine but I prefer the weight of glass domes rather
than resin.

Glass domes are available online.

A one inch circle punch (search online for one)
makes cutting out your foil circles
really easy.

You can of course cut them with 
scissors – however, I found that too
fiddly and inaccurate.
