I had a piece of the soda can left from when I did the soda can embellished bag in August. I found a good use for it in this statement necklace.
Cut out triangle shapes from the soda can. Don’t use your best scissors for this, they will be ruined if you cut metal!
Punch holes on the sides of your cut out shapes and put them aside for a while.
Get a newspaper or a commercial flyer, I found this one for dishwashers to be be perfect. It has a strong color, not too much text and the dishwashers are shown in a consistent pattern. That usually means you’ll get somewhat consistent looking paper beads.
Cut out strips of paper. Put paper glue on the strips.
Roll the strips tightly.
When you’ve made a bunch of paper rolls, glue them to the soda can plates. I used E6000 glue for this.
Trim the excess paper rolls with a scissor (Save these little bits. If you haven’t done it already, you can use them to fill in the space around the holes at the sides)
I also added a coat of varnish to my paper rolls to make them water and stain proof.
Get some chain, jump rings and a clasp and assemble your new necklace!
