Happy Mango Beads Trash To Treasure Beading Contest!

I entered a beading contest for the first time (in a long time). The contest was put on by Happy Mango Beads and it was called Trash to Treasure. The general rules of the contest was to create an item of jewelry out of something old and/or recycled and recyclable materials. I liked the idea of the contest so I decided to enter and I also thought it would get my creative juices flowin. What I created was pair of earrings made from portions of  Kombucha Wonder Drink cans which were on sale 5 for $5 at Whole Foods. I liked the logo on the can so I decided to cut it out and create around it. Anyway, here are photos of the materials and the earrings!
