Recycled tin earrings with bells and beads hanging textile wrapped wire
Another pair of earrings in the ‘Tin Tin Treasures’ series. A fun collection which is made out of reused metals.
The bells were hand formed out of flattened beer bottle caps. In this case the caps of Grolsch beer bottles. These hang from oxidized wire which had been wrapped in silk (turquoise) or cotton (pink) and then painted with a protective layer to prevent silk or cotton from fraying. Extra color was added in glass, metal and wooden beads.
All sharp edges have been sanded to a smooth finish.
