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".
These flowers come from a tin that had a flower for each month of the year. I think the pattern of the flowers was meant to look like needlepoint or cross stitch (two of my loves as a young girl). My husband spotted it high on a shelf in a shop in Virginia (he is very tall!). I wasn’t completely sold on it but it was big and the colors were beautiful. I gave it try and it has produced some of my favorite, one of a kind pieces.
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 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.
