A friend gave me my first of these tins a long while back. The thing I most remember about it was the entire bottom inch of print had been worn off by years of handling. A tea tin taken off the shelf several times a day over decades. This proudly worn history often makes me delay using some of my tins. Now whenever I find a version of this one I pick it up because it has come to be a customer favorite.
The .625" (16mm) circles are hand punched, formed and then the edges are finished smooth. The basins are then drilled and finished with surgical stainless steel kidney wires. The finished earrings are .5" (13mm) round and hang just about 1" (26mm) from your ear. Each pair of earrings is made to order, so please allow for some variation with your unique pair.
All adaptive reuse pieces come to you neatly displayed on an upcycled card ready for gift-giving.
Please contact me with any questions.
