Tin Years is a concept that started out as a simple gesture of love for an anniversary gift, and is now a treasure hunt mixed with a fashion show. Taking antique and vintage tins originally made to hold sweets, teas, tobacco, and sometimes moth balls, and turning them into modern accessories is truly unique and brings life back into long forgotten items.

I hope you have as much fun wearing my items as I had making them.
