We are doing a blog carnival on the always wonderful SATEAM. This means that we are all writing about the same topic, and this month the topic is; RECYCLING
Great theme for me as I do have some fun recycling projects to show you.
|Soda can before|
I had this idea, that I wanted recycle soda cans, and use them in my jewelry. The idea sprung from a friend who just can't live without her daily doses of coca cola, and as a fun present I wanted to make her coke earrings :-)
|Cut out soda can earrings|
So I cleaned out the cans and cut out circle discs, with my disc cutter. Afterwards I filed the edges so they wouldn't be sharp.
Then I punched holes in the circles, and used little star rivets to cover the holes. I haven't gotten around to make any more, but the plan is to have some available in my shop soon, so keep an eye out.
Another recycling project is my steampunk pieces. I use old watch parts, buttons, nails and whatever fun thing I come across.
|Christmas present for my Mum last year|
|Birthday present for my Mum|
My mum love steampunk, so most of my steampunk pieces she ends up getting before they make the web shop, but I do make these as custom orders as well.
So that was a little bit about how I like to use recycling products in my jewelry making!
