Upcycled vintage tin cut by hand to reveal a cheery marigold flower and leaf motif pendant.
From my collection of vintage tins, picked up from flea markets, vintage shops and car boot sales, I've selected a rather battered Huntley & Palmers biscuit tin in order to turn the beautiful illustrations into a pendant. The design on this tin, from the British makers of biscuits since 1822, was a beautiful Chinese inspired painting featuring blue birds, dragons and pretty trees and flowers.
For this necklace, I have used the cheerful yellow and orange marigold flowers and leaf motif cut by hand into an oval shape and finished it with a domed tin circle in sage green tones that dangles elegantly from the base. It is further decorated with unique Czech turquoise and green milk glass beads on sterling silver wires. An enchanting gift for anyone who needs cheering up or who may be celebrating their 10th Wedding anniversary.
As you can imagine, this tin is many years old and each panel has been cleaned carefully and sanded to remove sharp edges. The reverse of the assemblage necklace is rustic as in keeping with the age of the artifact used. It measures 5.5 cm tall overall, with the oval 2.2 cm tall and 3 cm wide and sits on a sterling silver chain.
