Upcycle: Tin-Can Tree {pendant}





Some time last month I walked out of a store with a 4-pack chosen specifically for the extraordinary can design. The description "brewed with Kaffir lime leaves, Lemongrass and Coriander" didn't hurt. Neither did the "organic" pedigree. So I figured I'd like the beer. But I was smitten with the can. 



Turns out I LOVE the beer. And I'm really happy with my little Earth Day pendant (enter to win it here). If you're interested in making one yourself, follow these basic instructions for working with aluminum cans. Beyond the basics, I simply drew and cut a tree base then positioned the leaves. Not much more I can add!





Giveaway: Happy Earth Day!





Happy Earth Day fellow Earthlings!  Considering the focus of my blog, it would be odd if I didn't mark the day in some special way. So I took inspiration from my latest favorite material (aluminum cans) and made some nature-inspired jewelry to give you.
