Now I've made so many pieces of jewelry at this point that I often come across old pieces in unexpected places. This one was hidden at the bottom of a bin I keep filled with stuff for shows. I had forgotten all about this piece, and am especially happy to be reminded of the two tins. They are somewhere in the stash, but I need to pull them out again to reexamine their potential.

My favorite of the two tins features a fabulous textured black background with these fantastic plants and flowers along the bottom edge. It was once a tea tin featuring huge elephants. The other side is from a vintage-y Laurel Burch tin covered in her graphic animals. If you lived through the 80s, it was almost impossible to have missed her work. It was on everything from mugs to jewelry for a while.

The tins faces are married to each other and the wooden center with a series of tiny rivets. A strip of tin forms the bail that links one side to the other and forms the channel to allow the 18" (47cm) sterling silver figaro chain to run through it. The pendant is 1" (25mm) round.

All adaptive reuse pieces come to you on lovely upcycled paint swatch cards and packaged in recyclable cardboard gift boxes.

Please contact me with any questions.
