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 0.5" in diameter. They are hung on 20 gauge sterling silver ear wires and hang down approximately 0.75".
This particular pair of flowers is made from a tin box that had the same print on the outside as the very first tin I collected as a child. I was an English Toffee tin and the lids were made of two pieces connected. When I took the lid apart this pink print was on the inside of the lid. The amazing thing is that the inside had never seen light so it was in perfect pristine condition and the pink and gold were not faded at all. I have only had that happen one other time however the inside print was not near as beautiful.
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 earrings come wrapped in 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.
