Various friends collect ring pulls for me, saved from their used drinks cans - luckily I know a fair few people who drink beer! (;-)).
I also go to my local bike repair shop, and rescue their discarded inner tubes from bicycles tyres that are irreparable - they throw a lot away! (these would end up in landfill, if people like me didn't recognise their potential for re-use)
I make various things with inner tubes, and when making cuffs, I punch holes out for eyelets - the round bits in the middle of these earrings, are the waste bit that gets punched out - I started keeping them, knowing I would find a good use for them!
This necklace is part of my new line, using colored ring pulls, with the rubber bits. I also have bracelets and earrings to match:
Please convo me for a custom matching set!
The chain links are stainless steel washers, and spring washers, which won't rust or tarnish, and are very strong.
The clasp is silver-plated.
This necklace measures 19 inches / 48 cm.
It can be shortened or lengthened to your specifications. Let me know as a note when buying.
