Beer Can Jewelry: Sterling Silver Brilliance
We're not big fans of jewelry unless you can use it as a bottle opener, but we've found the best way to accessorize for your love of beer this side of piercing your liver. An artist in Vermont (our home state...Green Mountains 4Eva) is making jewelry using real beer cans, and they look surprisingly cool...not like the crap we usually see that passes for "jewelry" on a lot of drinking sites. We were so excited about these we showed them to one of the interns, and her response was "Why the hell would you want a Pabst Blue Ribbon ring?" and our response was "Why the hell wouldn't you?" Of course, we fired her on the spot.
Here's what Dana Roth has to say about her beer can creations:
All of our Beer Can Jewelry is made of sterling silver & aluminum beer or soda cans that I (or a close friend) have personally drank from. The aluminum is secured to the jewelry with sterling rivets & protected from damage by ledges (on the rings) or caps (at the end of the bracelets).
Available jewelry includes rings, thin bracelets and large cuff bracelets, including labels from Bud, Rolling Rock, Miller High Life, PBR, Guinness and Boddingtons, among others. Oh, and you can get soda can ones too, but come on.
Rings are available for $30, thin bracelets for $60, and it's $80 for the cuff bracelets, but it's worth every penny for the beer enthusiast in your life. Go to D-LiciousMetal.com to find a list of retail locations, and if you can't find any nearby you can order online from Elsewares. If you're thinking about getting some of these for that special someone for Valentine's Day you should order soon, because they can take a couple weeks to be created and shipped.
