Tin Earrings Red Kimono Medium
These beautiful earrings are created from vintage tins collected from all over the world. Each tin began life containing tea, biscuits or perhaps chocolate; then they have spent years in a cupboard, or possibly as a well-loved container for buttons or other treasures.
Jen Banks selects tins with lovely scenes or colourful patterns; she hand-cuts, files and sands them into shape. She then domes some of them slightly to catch the light. Each earring is sealed to protect its charm. Finally, a sterling silver ear wire is attached. Every pair is different and unless another tin the same is found, quite possibly never to be repeated.
Note: As most of the tins are vintage, they have lived a long and varied life, and, as such, there may be slight imperfections in some of the earrings, but this only adds to their charm.
Dimension: 3 cm from top of earring, excluding hook.
