A tool to put a hole in the bottlecap to place a split ring or jump ring through?   There is a jewelry hole punch for that.  They sell them at Hobby Lobby and other crafts stores.in the scrapbooking/stamp section and jewelry section.  They are usually 1.8 mm hole punches.  It will look like the pic in the link below.

I used a drill with a small bit. Worked just fine for me.

I looked for one on Tuesday and all I could find was one for flat sheets of metal and it looked much more complicated than that one lol. But that's exactly what I need!!!!

I would use one like this. I know joanne's has them and possibly Michaels, overstock, too.

I have issues with my hands and this allows me to use my hands in a way that doesn't cause pain and doesn't depend on my personal strength.

A pointy metal stick wih a hndle. You use ir to punch holes in metal or fabric, or anything. It's the cheapest tool for the job.
