Prophater’s pop cans

Shapes cut from soda cans and covered with polymer clay are the trick behind this playful necklace from Laurie Prophater. The telephone wire used to secure the beads to rubber cord complete this reuse, recycle design.

A complete how-to of Laurie’s process appears in the autumn issue of Belle Armoire jewelry magazine. Laurie’s working on more variations using this technique that you can see on her Flickr site.

Thanks for your help. The network has been repaired. Here’s a picture of Maureen Carlson’s early morning introduction to a magnificent moose in our backyard.

      Cynthia, I am in withdrawal not being up there with you guys this week. I know you are enjoying a great time and hopefully I can be there next year.
      I miss the Moose but tell Maueen thanks from me for sending a pic. What fun it is to spy one up close and personal.

      Laurie’s necklace is great. So is she and I know you all are enjoying the fun. Recycle, Recycle! I guess I should go to the bin and pull out some cans to work with. Have a great time!
