Jen Roder: Renegade Silversmith

In her own words:

I’m a jeweler and I make pendants,earrings and cufflinks primarily out of beer bottle caps collected from local bars. I usually work with beer and soda bottle caps but also incorporate tea tins and soda cans into my designs. The bottle caps are punched out and then affixed to a nickel silver disk so that the image of the bottle cap is preserved, but it is not immediately identifiable as a bottle cap. I am also able to do custom orders for people with a favorite beer or bottle cap in mind!

In addition to re-using jewelry materials, I use earth friendly “plastic” labels made from cornstarch and packaging materials are made from recycled post-consumer waste.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at

These are great. I do mine a little differently.

these are great! I like the way you remove them from the bottle top so it's just the image on the disk.
