Can Tabs: They Become Jewelry You Won’t Believe…

All you girls out there probably have quite a few pieces of jewelry laying around at home. You probably don’t know what they are made out of or even how they are made. We are so used to going into a store, finding what we like, and then just buying it. When the time is right, we wear it, and that’s pretty much the end of the story. However, there is so much more information to be gathered that will not only amaze you, but also make you a little bit more appreciative of what you are using to look beautiful. Etsy is a brilliant place to find handcrafted jewelry which will also tell you the story behind pretty much every single piece advertised there.

So seriously, when I first saw these, I thought they were pieces of regular ordinary jewelry being sold. I wasn’t particularly impressed at first, but after it hit me that they were actually made out of can tabs, my head started spinning. Ann Skydell Harmon is not only a designer, but a brilliant mind who totally knows how to touch our emotions and grab our attention.

With her company Ann-Made, she uses old can tabs to create everything from earrings to bracelets. It’s amazing to see such a craft in which something is created by using so little. It’s a magnificent example of turning trash into a gold mine. Her creations have earned her not only fame and fortune, but also awards. There is not much more I can say except than that I think I will let her creations speak for themselves. Let yourself be inspired, amazed and touched.
