JAMESTOWN, N.C. -- A Jamestown man has an impressive collection of beer bottle caps.

Mike Valle says he has somewhere between 50,000 and 100,000.

He started collecting them when he was in college, before coming up with the idea of turning them into art.

Since his first recreation of the Mona Lisa, he's done many different pieces of art.

"I stay up late at night trying to figure them out sometimes," he said.

So far, he's used 30,000 bottle caps in his art.
