This item was shipped very quickly and when it did arrive it was absolutely adorable. The artist was very helpful with all of my questions. Will buy more of these for my garden!

About

Tinkan Designs is about the creative re-use of waste materials

Hello - I'm Annabel or Tinkabel.
Recycling and re-using has always been a part of my life.
Art and creativeness has also always been a part of my life.
Tinkan Designs is my way of combining the two, and (trying) to earn a modest income!

Quite a few years ago now, I saw someone wearing just one ring-pull on a bit of string around his neck.
The seed of inspiration was born.
What a fantastic, free, and abundant resource, ring-pulls are! Not only that, but they are perfectly formed, and beautifully designed, as you will see, once you take the time to notice them! It's such a shame people discard them so readily!
So... I started collecting ring-pulls... and then I started making jewellery with them...and Tinkan Designs was born...
At around the same time I was also doing a Blacksmithing, and Metalwork course,(in my 30's!) and it was here I learnt to weld, and work with metal.
As a result, I have quite a range of products, and 2 different work-spaces - a caravan where I make the smaller things such as jewellery, and purses. And a larger metalworking workshop, where I can make a mess, grinding and welding, and store all my scrap metal! The underlying theme though in all my work is re-using recycled/scrap materials.
I do like combining these materials when i can, especially plastic, and metal, and inner tube rubber...
Rivets are one of my favourite things! I use a LOT of rivets in my work!
I have been making my jewellery for maybe 8 years now, and I am still amazed at how many different designs can come from the 3 simple main components I use - Ring-pulls, Washers, and Rivets!
