40 (forty) metal discs from NON-vintage salvaged scrap metal.

For the outsider artist, the recycling addict or found object lover; I offer these to you.

I hand punch all these discs and the holes, then meticulously file the edges smooth. From expired auto and motorcycle license plates, tags and labels, metal tins and cans, name plates, etc. What I have on hand is always changing. Some qualifies as vintage material in Etsy's eyes but not mine. Scrap from 1980 thru today. All was headed for the landfill. Every piece is from something unwanted, worn out or broken. Some have chippy paint, a bit of rust or a waffled surface. Some are shiny new looking.

Various sizes from 3/8 - 1" (9-25 mm) and various colors. Charm size.
The photos are examples of just some of what I have had in the past. You will get an assortment of forty pieces that will probably include:

silver colored (aluminum and steel)
gold colored steel, aluminum and/or brass
5 with writing
Various color license plates with a reflective background including some with partial curves and lines from lettering.
shiny metallic and foiled colors (some were from a laminated sheet over metal, others are just bright tints)
and other misc textures, patterns and colors.

I make the cuts to exclude identifiable ™ trade-names and ® recognizable logos or graphic designs. No Coca Cola © or such. I stay away from that. I don't use any thin aluminum beverage cans. I'm confident you can use these without any worry about copyright infringement.

All have 1/16 - 1/8" holes for hanging, located near an edge. Little ones sometime land in the middle 'cause they are hard for me to see. If the piece already had a hole or rivet, I let it stay as is. Some of these might be 1/4".

Obviously these are great dangles for jewelry or cool scrapbooking embellishments.

Other specialty and vintage scrap metal discs can be found elsewhere in my shop! I can also make these without holes. Got something else special in mind? Convo me.

100% pure scrap
Let's save the earth... one disc at a time.
