You’ve probably seen Corona bottles cut and reinvented as drinking glasses. But Millie Hilgert, owner of Miss Courageous, has a different brewskie-container recycling idea. She turns beer cans into stylish bracelets.


“The local beer brewers are making delicious beer in beautiful cans. Being an avid up-cycler, I knew I wanted to create something wearable out of the cans,” Hilgert explains. “Using local beer cans, and cans from other Northwest microbrews, leather and aluminum cuff bracelets are just the beginning. (And I’m having as much fun creating as tasting all the beer!)”
