Holiday Mints & Fruitcake Repurposed Vintage Tin Necklace
This statement necklace was created from 2 different vintage holiday tins. The lower teal section came from a "Bower's Old fashioned Creamy Mints" and the ornate top section came from an old "Hostess fruitcake" container. I cut and sanded the tin sections, riveted the lower section wth brass eyelets, and suspended a hammered brass bar between the lower and top sections. Brass jump rings attach the sections to each other and to an 18" brass rolo chain, finished with a lobster clasp closure. The pendant is 2 1/2" tall and 2 3/4" 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!
