That's the can I chose. I like how it has these nice silver and gold colors (I think it's actually the caffeine free Diet winter Coke) but keeps the classic Coke red. Anyway, so first I cut around the top and bottom of the can with a mat knife, and up and down the can.
Then, cut the can into three sections. I made sure that my shape (you'll see it in a second) fit into the sections I chose in a way I liked.
Next, I traced my pattern onto a piece of paper. I chose a simple jewel design. I then placed the pattern where I liked it on the can. I cut two of the shape.
Next, I used a black sharpie to draw the jewel lines onto the two charms.
Then I used a pin to put a hole through the top of each of the charms and put two jump-rings in each hole, one through the other.
Finally, I just added two earring backs.
And there you have the cheapest pair of diamond earrings ever! Also, as you can see, I made a pair of simple circular earrings. They are actually signed by Brandon Statnon, the creator of the popular blog Humans Of New York. I met him as part of the prize for winning a competition he ran. Anyway, super cool, under 5 dollar earrings!
