Soda Can Earrings was founded in 2004. Our Company is dedicated to creating fashionable, eco-friendly jewelry. We craft each piece by hand from recycled soda cans. Each can is cleansed in a sanitizing bath that does not contain harsh chemicals. Afterwards, we mold it into one of our many unique designs and attach the necessary jewelry findings to the piece before packing it into a reusable box for you to keep and store your jewelry. Keep an eye out for new products in our blog, Twitter, and Facebook pages. We are always thinking up new ways to up-cycle our soda cans!
About the Founder
Mia Skinner was only in seventh grade when she set out to make enough money to purchase an Apple iPod. An entrepreneur at heart, she had run a lemonade stand and sold crafts since she was five, but this time, she knew she had to create something truly special. Soon, she had made her first pair of soda can earrings! She started selling her creations to her classmates, and the response was fantastic. It wasn’t long before Mia was able to buy that iPod, and by then, she was ready to continue and expand her business.
Over time, Mia has added different versions of her earrings and has ventured into necklaces, bracelets, and EveryRings. She is currently attending Carnegie Mellon University for entrepreneurship while continuing to run her jewelry business.
Throughout its existence, Soda Can Earrings has gained attention from the public. Mia was recently a semi-finalist for the television show “Shark Tank,” a competition show for entrepreneurs. Soda Can Earrings was also shown on the front page of the Pittsburgh Flea website during the summer of 2010. In the following August, it was featured in Pittsburgh Fashion Magazine. Copies of these features can be found in the “Blog” section.
We truly appreciate your business!
