Pop Tabs Jewelry

On: Wednesday, February 10, 2010

While we've seen quite a few DIY gadgets made of pop tabs (surprisingly by the way): like pop tabs belt and pop tabs lamp and pop tabs handbag, most of them required some effort and well, skill. This one is for those who don't have either time or the skill: Pop Tabs Jewelry.

I guess with some creativity you'll be able to create something even cuter:

Again, not too solid I suppose - it is more like a decoration than anything else.
