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 tin flowers are approximately 1" in diameter. They are hung on 20 gauge sterling silver ear wires and hang down approximately 1.5".
These flower earrings are made from a tin that has memories that are near and dear to my heart. They are made from a Coleman’s Mustard tin (restaurant size). My Dad loved Coleman’s Mustard. One of my fondest memories of him is mixing up a batch on Christmas morning (just the powder with a little water) to have on a biscuit with Smithfield ham (which my grandparents gave him every year). He loved Smithfield ham AND Coleman's Mustard. I cherish these memories and will always think of him every time I see a tin of Coleman's Mustard.
Tins and collecting them bring back sweet memories of my childhood. 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 pendants 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.
