All of my pieces are handmade and one-of-a-kind. They are rustically elegant. Many of the tins I use are antique and show signs of wear and tear. In my opinion, it just adds to the beauty of the piece, which has had a history. The flower of the Flower Brooch measures one inch across. The leaves are one inch also.
This particular brooch is made with several different tins. A vintage brown and tan tin was a fruitcake tin with a picture of Tiny Tim on the top, one of the green leaves is from a Disaronno Italian Cookie tin, one leaf is from a Twinings Green Tea tin and the pink was a surprise. The pink came from the underside of an enclosed lid of an antique English Toffee tin. It was so nice because it had not been exposed to the elements at all. It was in pristine condition.
Tins and collecting them bring back happy memories. I love using tin boxes in my work, giving them a new life in a one-of-a-kind jewelry piece that hopefully you will love and enjoy wearing for many years to come.
All of my pieces come wrapped in a box. If you are buying them as a gift for someone I can ship to them and add a gift card. Thank you for looking! I am also happy to take requests for different color combinations so feel free to contact me.
