Soda Tab Bracelets!

Fourth grade student, Milena, wowed me with a really cool way to reuse soda tabs for jewelry!

Her cousin taught her this cool technique in which ribbons are weaved through soda tabs to connect them into a beautiful bracelet.

You can see the detailed weaving in this shot.

Here is another work-in-progress. Milena is planning on wearing this one for Halloween!

Here's the artist modeling her work! So beautiful and intricate! And fashionable as well! This is a great reminder that jewelry is an art form, too. What other recycled materials could you use to make unique jewelry? Please share your ideas with us in a comment, or bring your work to show me in the art room!
Thanks for sharing Milena!
