Color Mosaic #3 Repurposed Vintage Tin Earrings
These earrings began as a vintage Flower Mosaic tin made in Holland in the 1960's. Gold is the background color with many mostly primary colors. It has lots of textured embossing. I cut and sanded the tin into matching shapes, then riveted the pieces to wide brushed brass semicircle shapes. Brass rolo chain attaches the semicircles to the ear hooks, which are brass leverbacks. 2 3/4" long and 2 1/4" wide. Very lightweight!
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!
