If you have been around here lately, you have seen the die cut jewelry phase I have been in since getting my Sizzix machine. Last week, I shared this round-up of 60 recycled can projects, which is where I got the inspiration for this pendant. There are several projects I found that use aluminum cans to create stunning jewelry.
This pendant is made of several layers. From top to bottom they are: Decorative pearl brad, leather cut from goodwill purse, metal cut from good will tin, 2 more leather layers, and a recycled starbucks Double Shot can, embossed and cut with sizzix. I spent the last couple of days cutting tin cans into flowers. Now that I have a huge stack, I will be creating lots of pieces. I found several more leather purses in my junking this weekend, as well as some more cool tins, so stay tuned for more die cut, recycled jewelry fun!
This purse was $1.50!!! Metal tin… $0.50, aluminum cans… free. My sizzix was well worth the cost!!
