Introduction: Soda Can Triangle Spiral Necklace

Aluminum Soda Can Jewelry

We all know that using pop tabs can make interesting Jewelry, but why not make use of the aluminum sheeting in the can?

Step 1: Materials and Shaping

Be extra careful! Cutting sheet aluminum can be dangerous and make the edges even sharper. Cut the top and bottom off the can until you get a rectangle sheet of aluminum. For this project, we need a thin strip from the rectangle, with a tapered end. Max thickness I would recommend for smaller sized jewelry is less than 1mm.

Step 2: ​Spiral

Begin by making a small fold in one end of the strip of aluminum. Fold it again, and once more to make a triangle. Now, slowly wrap tightly around the triangle to form a spiral. This triangle will act as a centerpiece for the spiral.

Step 3: ​Hang

Punch a hole through the back of the spiral, and throw on a jump ring. Attach to a cord and chain and enjoy!

Ps. An interesting touch would be to use different patterns on the inside. Coke would give you a red inside, Pepsi blue, etc. I used Sprite which yielded this dark to dark green interior.
