Recycled Bottlecap Tie Tacks

Little bits of assemblage art from recycled materials, bright and a bit quirky -- set into found bottle caps are my embroideries of recycled sewing thread, in colors from a midcentury modern to 60s palette. They have been mounted over recycled milk bottle plastic and set into the bottle caps with tie tack findings. Cute as bugs' ears, festive and colorful, in sets or singly on a sweater, lapel, or knit tie for the adventurous gentleman.

Free shipping in the U.S. only.

Secure options
  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
My preference is to use Pay Pal for all transactions. I no longer offer reserves or layaway, except to long term customers ("patron reserve"). If a purchase is cancelled after Pay Pal payment, I will deduct the cost of the Pay Pal transaction, as well as Etsy commission and relisting fees.

Returns & exchanges

I will refund any purchase you find unsatisfactory. I will repair any breakage without cost, if you will pay shipping costs.

Shipping policies

I will acknowledge your order and ship via USPS priority mail, unless you are notified of a change. Please convo for shipping outside the US or for insuring shipping. When I can safely save on cost of shipping, I will refund the balance to the customer via Pay Pal, or US Mail. Shipping for sale items is free in the US.

Additional policies

I take a limited number of commissions provided the nature of the work is consistent with my practice. I especially enjoy repurposing old costume jewelry, but do not remelt old metal or reset valuable stones. One of my special interests is mourning pieces, either as jewelry or wall art. This sort of commission entails close communication between the artist and client, and it can be especially healing. I respect all losses of one's loves, and this includes animal companions. When loss is memorialized, it can be celebrated as another facet of the inevitable change of ongoing life.
