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".
This particular pair of flowers is made from the 1950s (or before) Velvet brand tobacco tin. Velvet Tobacco changed the color of their tin from this burgundy/full-bodied cabernet color to a candy apple red color. I have not been able to find the exact year that happened but I will keep researching!
Tins are such a sweet memory of my childhood and my travels. I love using them in my work, giving them a new life as a one-of-a-kind jewelry piece that you will love and wear for many years to come.
All of my earrings 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.
