Aluminum Jewelry


My first introduction to aluminum bracelets was when I was traveling years ago in Nepal. I was so drawn to all of the shops and stalls that sold Indian Wedding Bangles. They were all so bright and colorful and of course, the fashion was a full arm full. Here are some examples of the bangles that I saw:


Ever since, I have admired this look of aluminum as a jewelry metal. Here are some samples of great jewelry artists using aluminum in their work.

I’m always attracted to artisans using recycled or upcycled materials. Jeanette of Verveine Designs does a beautiful job using aluminum cans and Washi Origami Papers to create these lovely jewelry pieces.

Here is a “Can-Do Recycled Necklace” tutorial from Better Homes and Gardens.


There is something about this tutorial that has really got my wheels spinning. Wouldn’t this look cool punched out, placed in a bezel and resin poured over the top?


These aluminum zipper kits are cool!

So LOVE these pieces by Etsy artist Christine Marie Davis of Christine’s Cabinet. Yes, they are aluminum knitting needles and old vintage buttons! What a brilliant combination!

Pretty fun stuff, isn’t it? I’d love to see what aluminum jewelry is inspiring you?
