Bird Watching Collection - Repurposed Vintage Tin Jewelry
If you are a bird watcher AND a tea lover, you are in for a treat! This mini-collection is made from 2 different tins - one was a retro 70's-era tin covered in greenery & flowers & birds, the other was a burnt orange Sunflower brand jasmine tea tin.
For the earrings, each section of tin is hand cut, and the edges sanded and made smooth. The birds have been riveted onto the front of sections of the tea tin. Brass wire has been formed, hammered and riveted to each. Brass earwires. The bird earrings are 3 1/4" long x 1 3/4" wide. The red bird is slightly longer, at about 3 5/8". The red zinnia earrings are 3" long & 1 1/2" wide .
For the necklace, the same process was used. Pendant measures 1 1/4" tall x 3 1/4" wide. Hung from a 22" brass rolo chain, finished with a lobster clasp closure.
PLEASE NOTE: Because these pieces are made from vintage tins, the metal surface may be uneven and/or have imperfections, tiny dings or scratches. To me, this is part of the piece's history. Please look carefully at the photos before purchasing so you know what imperfections exist, & so you are happy with your purchase!
