This amazing artist proves that cans have "cantastic" capabilities.

Las Vegas crafter Christine Esposito is the mastermind behind the Funky Recycling Etsy shop. Christine proves that one man's trash really is another's treasure by creating unique pieces of jewelry out of pop cans. Christine collects discarded pop, beer and juice cans and stamps shapes out of them to produce one-of-a-kind wearables.

The Funky Recycling Etsy shop contains a huge collection of junk-gem jewelry, ranging from necklaces to earrings and even jigsaw puzzles. The pop cans give the pieces a shimmer and shine, and not to mention interesting patterns. Since these treasures are made from upcycled materials, they are a great eco-friendly purchase.

These gems from the Funky Recycling Etsy shop are anything but trashy.
