I have played around with weaving tin over the years as well. It’s way harder than you might think and the results aren’t particularly neat and tidy, so I’ve always abandoned the efforts. Today, however, I remembered that I’m practicing allowing more wonkiness in the work, so I figured out how to finish the edges and just went for it. Behold, woven wonkiness tin earrings.
The pieces are all hand cut and then woven together to create a swath of tin fabric. An arc of surgical stainless steel is added to the top and a French hook wire completes the look.
The finished earrings are approximately 1" (24mm) wide and hang about 3" (72mm) from the ear.All adaptive reuse pieces come to you neatly displayed on an upcycled card, wrapped and ready for gift-giving.
Please contact me with any questions.
