All of my pieces are handmade one-of-a-kind. Many of the tins I use are antique and show signs of wear and tear. I think it adds to the beauty of the piece, which has had a history. The tin flowers are approximately 1" in diameter. They are hung on 20 gauge sterling silver ear wires and hang down approximately 1.5".
Because of my love of collecting tin I get gifts of tin boxes from all the lovely people in my life. This particular pair of flowers is made from a tin box that was given to me by my metalsmithing teacher and mentor, Marilyn. It is a really beautiful tin that has deep rich colors of blue and pink. In these earrings, I focused on the shades of pink.
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 earrings come wrapped in a little 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
