Dainty Petite Tin Necklace - Enchanting, upcycled Toleware pattern pendant created from an old English vintage tin tea box that, (being a little worse for wear in places) was destined for land-fill. A perfect gift for anyone on their 10th wedding anniversary. Using a hammer and punch, I've saved the beautiful rose and violets from an old Toleware tin and cut into teardrop shapes.
Tole painting is a form of folk art and the term tôle is derived from the French tôle peinte, "painted sheet metal" in which stenciling and gilding often features, almost always on a black ground. This form of folk art gained popularity in 18th century New England with tôle painting being used on shades for bouilotte lamps, trays and lidded canisters. It is now more commonly associated with Canal Barge Art and can often be seen adorning narrow boats and gypsy caravans.
The hand-cut tole flower teardrop is very dainty at just 2 cm long, double backed with another tin piece for weight, filed and sanded by hand and then given a protective coat of coconut oil. It is finished with a Picasso finish pink Czech glass bead, iridescent midnight blue pearl and small fired Czech glass bead which are all wire wrapped with sterling silver wire. This boho-style necklace is threaded with either a silver plated or sterling silver chain which has been aged by hand and is available in your choice of lengths.
