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 flower is approximately 1" in diameter and is hung on a 20 inch, 1.8mm sterling silver bead chain. On the back is stamped the word "BLOOM". I have always loved the quote "Bloom where you are planted" by Mary Engelbreit. I hope you love it too!
This tin I did not see until I was an adult. I was living in Santa Fe and visiting North Carolina with a friend who loved to go to Thrift and Antique Shops and coincidentally so did I. On that trip, we did some serious shopping. I had sort of stopped collecting tins because I had accumulated so many and was running out of room for them but when I saw this one I couldn’t resist. The blue color was such a good blue. It was a beautiful vintage blue and the font of the writing on it was also beautiful. The scrolls of each letter added a very fancy quality to the box which had been a tobacco tin. The brand was Edgeworth and the tobacco was from Virginia. At this point in my life, I had never seen tobacco tins. On this trip, being in the southeast, I saw many of them. I bought the Edgeworth tin that day and added a whole new category to my collection.
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 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.
