    These are awesome!!! I have beer bottle caps to put ice resin into but that wouldn’t have been as much of a stretch as this. this is truly inspired and again–extremely wearable!!

    What is the Big Kick? Love the color in this piece. Also think the unchanged disks would make an interesting necklace.

    Wonderful necklace, Asia. Love the whole idea of using recycled materials in a creative way. And I kinda like to soda can design blanks, too. They’d make some really colorful jewelry.

    LOVE this idea :) what did you use to dull the edges of your soda can circles? They must have been sharp.
