Whimsical Tin

I really hit the tin jackpot at Goodwill the other day. The whimsical pattern and color palette of this tin resulted in a fun and funky earring-necklace set. 

I cut, textured, and patinated a piece of brass sheet and then riveted a tin disc and bail onto it. Glass,  crow, and brass beads add a pop of color to the brown suede cording. 

To the domed tin discs, I added magnesite, bone, coral, and brass beads. The handmade earwires are brass.
