Another Pop Top Tab Bracelet

I made this bracelet from a tutorial that I watched on a YouTube Video. You can watch it HERE.
I also found the written instructions with photos HERE on this page of the wonderful Creative Origins blog.
I found these instructions to be very easy to understand.
Thank you Creative Origins for these easy instructions!
I used silver colored wrapped elastic cording and it looks nice with the tabs. I pulled the elastic so that I didn't leave any slack between the links. When I finished and tied it all together, there is just enough stretch so that the bracelet slides over my hand. I used 26 tabs and the bracelet is 8 inches.

This is amazing! Really pretty. I would have never thought something so available could be made into this. Love all your jewelry and I can just see this on your Granddaughter. Glad you shared it with us.

What a fantastic piece! It looks like something that would be sold in a boutique for a nice sum! And it's so shiny, too!

It always amazes me when people are crafty enough to make something from practically nothing. I wish I were more creative. Keep up the good work.

Hi, I just found you on the Blogs of Note too! Congrats on your feature!

I recently saw soda tab jewelry, and now my oldest is saving all the tabs. Hopefully we can make something some day! =)

I'm now following your blog!

Adie said...

This is very cool! I used to collect soda tabs years ago and eventually threw them out for want of inspiration. I might start saving them again.

Pashimina said...

Hi, I like the design and keep up the great masterpieces on your blog

Stephanie said...

very cool. gotta start saving those soda cans tops. off to check the recycling...

Aoife said...

This is gorgeous!! I would definitely wear it.

I am making a messenger bag from Coca-Cola cans, and I can't wait to finish it.

I'm glad people are starting to think green more and recycle. Recycled accessories could be the next big thing!

Katie said...

That's really cute... I'll have to try it sometime. :)

RecycleCindy said...

I love your recycled pop tab bracelet. What a great looking piece of upcycled jewelery!

khaay said...

i like ittt :D
thinking of selling it to the public? :D

Deanna said...

I was talking to someone the other day about - do you remember making CURTAINS with pop tops- the kind with the toungue part?? I did that back in middle school. She had no idea what I was talking about!
Someone else remembers those, right??

PS: IS it true the recycling places will give your more $$ for the tabs?

craftymug said...

Deanna,
I remember the tabs you are talking about. You pulled them up and pulled on them and the "tongue" and tab just came right off. I didn't make the curtains but I remember them. I don't think the tabs are worth more. It is so much for a lb. of aluminum regardless if it is the can or the tab.
Thanks for stopping by!

Its such as you learn my thoughts! You seem to know so much approximately this, such as you
wrote the e-book in it or something. I think that you could
do with a few p.c. to drive the message house a bit, but instead of that, that is
magnificent blog. A fantastic read. I'll definitely be back.
