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 tea box. It was given to me by a fellow tinsmith. He does tin collage to "paint" a picture. He does beautiful landscapes, birds and many other lovely subjects. He is not interested in many patterned tins so he often gives them to me. I give him many of my solid tins. I love this one. The red is such a good, deep and bright red. I love the bits of green and the white patterns too.
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 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.
