You only get 10 cents for turning in a soda can at the recycling center – why not turn your soda cans into jewelry instead? Here are some ideas I found out on the Internet, collected from some of my favorite bloggers.
Upcycling: Re-imagining Our Waste has a fantastic tutorial on making very wearable Soda Can Jewelry.

Pop Tab Bracelet
Instructables has the Pop Tab Bracelet tutorial.
Soda Can “Tiles” Bracelet
This tutorial tells you how to make these tiles, however I would use elastic in place of the fabric so that I wouldn’t have to bother with the button. Plus, I think it would look better without the button. Note to bleeding finger: the Modge Podge is a step you don’t want to skip. It coats the sharp edges of the soda can so that your jewelry is safe to wear.
Soda Can Earrings
Shona’s earring tutorial.
That’s it for now. Check back later as I’m sure I’ll add more tutes to this page as I come across them or as I develop them myself.
