Summary:

Here are some great Eco tips that will inspire you to make beautiful art works and accessories from unexpected materials. You can use recycled soda cans to make your own amazing statement jewelry pieces. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, soda and beer cans make up the largest source of aluminum waste. You should know that recycling one aluminum can saves enough energy to run a 100-watt bulb for 20 hours, a computer for 3 hours, or even a TV for 2 hours, so it would be great to use aluminum cans in order to make something unique, creative, stylish and Eco-friendly at the same time.

 

Recycling the aluminum cans to make jewelry seems like a great way to use your creativity, since you have an endless source of patterns, colors and shapes you can incorporate in your designs. Even if recycling aluminum cans is not a new idea as there are several ways to do this, and the easiest way is to take them to a recycling center, but I am still amazed to discover new ways to create something beautiful using this material. I love these kind of jewelry made of recycled aluminum soda cans because they make an Eco-statement and they look amazing. These unique handmade jewelry pieces are made by Jillmccp, and can be found on her Etsy shop.

 

 

I am convinced that, as the artist explains on her Etsy profile, we can all make the world a little greener with style, so let’s take a loot at some examples of the most creative rings, bracelets, earrings and even statement necklaces made by aluminum cans. The lovely pieces of jewelry are handmade designed, hand-cut and embossed. The nice thing about them is that the edges are not sharp as you would expect, they have been sanded smooth.
