Upcycled vintage tin cut by hand to reveal a trio of orange tulips in an oceanside scene and decorated with a hand carved pumpkin shape fluorite bead and peach Swarovski crystals. A thoughtful gift for a gardener.
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 a tulips by the shore motif cut into a teardrop shape and finished it with three peach Swarovski crystal beads that dangle elegantly from the base. It is further decorated with a hand carved fluorite bead in delicate sage green and fire polished Czech glass bead on sterling silver wire. An enchanting gift for anyone who is fond of nature 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 6 cm tall overall, with the teardrop 3 cm tall and 2.3 cm wide and sits on a chain in your choice of length.
