A while back, I posted about an upcycled treasury I’d assembled on Etsy. Paging through the listings, to find cool things to fill my treasury, I found an amazingly wide assortment of unique and beautiful things created from old soda cans.
Who would have thought? Aluminum is so sharp! Those artists are much braver than I. I can hardly imagine how these things are made, or the various injuries sustained in their creation. (I have a hard enough time keeping my fingers intact as it is, without adding sharp art projects to the mix) Still, these are things that I’m glad to know exist!
One of the items that I was especially intrigued by was the Soda Can Flower Earrings by madeofpaperandthings. She has some really nice things in her shop (read more on her process and other crafts here), but these earrings really stood out to me. They’re so small and the petals so intricate. They really are quite beautiful! So, I caved and bought a pair.
They arrived early this week, nestled in a cute little box with some fabric padding:
Very impressive indeed!
