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 Rusty Rectangles with Dot Earrings hang down 2.25 inches long. The rectangles measure 1 inch across and 0.75 inches long. They are hung on 20 gauge sterling silver ear wires.
The rusty metal is 20 gauge and has developed its patina naturally, in the elements. After the pieces are cut out they are waxed and sealed. The pink dots on this pair came from a very large, vintage tobacco tin. I seemed at one time the pink was red and it had been faded by the sun, again developed in the natural elements.
I love using antique tins in my work, giving them a new life in 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.
