Tin Charm Jewelry

Made from beautiful recycled and vintage advertising tins. Lightweight and so easy to wear…

In the Summer of 2005 I was making etched brass charms for my handmade journal bookmarks. As I hammered out shapes, I reached for one of my decorative tins nearby. I collect tins for the colorful patterns and pictures on the outsides. I drilled and altered the tins, and soon had made my first pair of earrings.

Now, years later, I have sold many hundreds of my Tin Charm earrings and they have traveled all over the country and world, through my sales at Portland Saturday Market and the art and craft shows I sell at regularly.
