Here's a Great Etsy Shop from Mexico

OK, so I have a thing for earrings, but this shop, sofiatrinker on Etsy has more than just earrings, I'll get to that later.
The kitties (aren't they cute?) were made from the bottom of a soda can. I love cats, especially black cats

This is what Sofia says about the heart earrings:  "These hip earrings were created while contemplating an empty soda can, while regretting having to throw it to the waste basket... I was reading on how much time it takes for aluminum to completely disappear, and I definitely wanted to do something about it. Hopefully, I will be able to gather as much soda cans one day, as to dramatically decrease the amount of garbage not only at home, but with my neighbors, family, friends, and gradually, all over town."

She also uses dyed orange peel for earrings. They still have a citrusy scent. I love the color!

This gorgeous necklace is made out of an upcycled tuna fish can and glass. It's really awesome!


I told you she has more than jewelry. These little candles made from cans are cute, cute, cute. Perfect for Christmas gifts or to keep yourself.
