I made these earring with mostly recycled material. They are really easy to make and you only need basic tools.
MATERIALS: -a dog food aluminum container; -a beer cap; -2 earrings hoops; -16 jump ring; -2 small chains (not in the photo). TOOLS: -pliers; -scissors; -hammer; -sanding paper; ...
Cut 10 small lives out of the dog food aluminum sheet. →Just pay attention to don't cut yourself during the whole process.
With the part of the scissors that doesn't cut make a line in the center of the leave, than make many little lines on the side of it. ...
Make a small hole with the nail on one edge of each leave.
Flatten the cap with the hammer (do it slowly or it will brake). Remove plastic sealing from it. Sand the colored part or paint it.
Cut the cap in half and sand really well all the edges.
Make 5 hole in the bottom round part of each cap and 2 in the middle of the flat part.
Place the leaves on the half cap with the jump rings.
Place the chain: put one edge in one hole and the other edge in the other hole of the flat part, using 2 jump rings.
Place the earring hook in the middle of the chain with another jump ring.
You are done! I think they are really nice and I like that they are made of recycled materials.
