Tin Pins and Work

These are some of the fun pins/brooches I have made from tin. I am so anxious and excited to be putting tons of have to do things behind me
and now can focus on up coming shows and get my studio straighten up and back to creating. I have taken a part time job with the school district and have finally adapted to the change in my schedule. Work actually causes me to be more organized with my time so I get more done at home and at The Studio.

Tin Can Art

I really love working with tin cans and re-using old found items to create one of a kind pieces of art jewelry.
This necklace is cut from a vintage tin era 1930-1940 made in Holland. It at one time held either toffee or tea. I am not quite sure which.
I used swavorski crystals and moonstone beads to give it the sweet retro look.

My season of selling at Roche Harbor has come to an end. I am building up my jewelry reserves for the holiday season. Here are some charms I have made with PMC (Precious Metal Clay). They are made from molds taken from vintage jewelry and other old and funky things. The rosary type charm is made from an Omar Pearl Tag that was on some pearls from the 1890 to 1920 era.
