I started cutting these long raindrop shapes a while back, but couldn't figure out how to make use of all their elongated beauty. It finally occurred to me one day to curl the tippy top part of the tin to create a loop. Sliding them on a medium sized steel ring sealed the deal. It has become my favorite way to utilize those last lovely little bits of tin.
The teardrops are approximately .25" (6mm) wide and with the addition of the steel ring and surgical stainless steel French hook ear wire, hang about 2.5" (60mm) from the ear.
Each piece of metal comes to me having lived a previous life--in some cases multiple lives! It is not unusual for the material to sometimes have scuffs, scratches, faded portions, and general wear and tear. If a flawless finish is important to you, please zoom in to the pictures here to look for imperfections that might be distracting for you.
All adaptive reuse pieces come to you neatly displayed on an upcycled card and sustainably wrapped ready for gift-giving.
Please contact me if you have any other questions.
