It's been a while I haven't made jewelry and I've missed it =P Ahhh all the opportunities (especially for up-cycling!)



I made these out of a really stylish ice-tea can that sells here in Montreal (and probably elsewhere, I just don't know). It's two pieces of "can" glued together, then cut into the desired shape and matched with some glass beads.



Somehow, my picture refuses to stay upright... but you get the idea.



C & C are always welcome!

I was wondering the same thing...we drink Arizona on a daily basis in my house...LOL (We're in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada)...I hate just tossing the cans inthe recycling bin since they are quite pretty to look at. this is a great idea!
