Like Beer? Wear bangles, bracelets or bits and bobs? 

Time for some booze based beautification of your wrists... Or y'know just being a trashy wee bizzum... 

This one was definitely a "lets see if this works" plan... The result fits in well with my weird collection of wrist junk and other adornments, including random cords, the net from a wine bottle, some wire bracelets, a smattering of "bar skank beads" (My friends are charming) and part of a girls dress...

Oh yeah and a bangle I can't remove and don't know how I got on, it simply won't fit back over the bones in my hand... 

Anyway dead simple to make and the perfect way to lower the tone of your jewellery collection... 

Odd note - Carlsberg isn't by any means my favourite beer, I don't mind it but it's too weak and watery, the cans just so happened to be all over the place last week and gave me the idea...

Step 1: You'll Need...

Not much really... 

 - A beer can or any can
 - A knife
 - Scissors
 - A ruler or a straight edge of something solid (I used the slide out writing board on my desk as a clamp by lifting it)
 - Pliers (You could probably manage with your hands anyway but it'd be way easier with them)
 - A distinct disregard for your dignity and sense of class

Step 2: Can Choppin'

Cut the top and bottom off the can roughly, leave plenty of room around the bit you want to be visible. 

I just stab near the angled bit at the top and saw with the knife as I cut. (It's weird how often I cut up cans for stuff)

Step 3: More cutting

Picture of More cutting
Cut the empty cylinder down the seam, I cut out an extra bit to get rid of the seam and pieces of the recycle logo/ingredients... 

Next cut the excess along the actual piece you want visible down to a little less than the width of the logo/visible bit either side...
