Book review and giveaway: Create Colorful Aluminum Jewelry

Create Colorful Aluminum Jewelry: Upcycle cans into vibrant necklaces, rings, earrings, pins, & bracelets 


Using the simplest of techniques, Helen Harle guides you through the process of making all different kinds of fun and festive jewelry.  All you need are aluminum cans, a few basic jewelry-making tools, and...get this...scrapbooking paper punches!!  Yup!  Paper punches can be used to cut right through the soft metal of cans, so after you've done a few preparatory steps with your cans, you can launch right into making fabulous flowered jewelry.  I think you'll be amazed by how many styles of flowers you can create with this simple method.  But don't stop there...once you know the basics, there's nothing to stop you from applying Helen's techniques to other forms.  

***Free Stuff Alert!!!***


Would you like to win a free copy of Create Colorful Aluminum Jewelry?  Just leave me a comment below and you'll automatically be entered.  If you tweet or post on Facebook or other social spots about the contest, you can leave a second comment and be entered twice!  Please please please make sure that your link will lead me to an email address, or else I won't be able to contact you.  No contact, no win, and I simply have to go on to the next person.  Deadline: October 20, 2010.
