I have made jewelry out of inner tube, toy, coins, balls and many other things for many years. I have also used old or vintages tin boxes for a long time...here are some new fresh from the bench.
Sun flower tin that i carefully have cut out of a recycled box and filed and decorated with facet beads. You can see more pictures of thes pair here.
Heated tin and hammered
They are alle very light weight and you hardly feel them in your ear.
All ear wires are nickel free.
Inspired from the fall season and the leaves falling from the trees.
You find ore about these earrings here, and my Etsy shop here.
