Playing with Tin


This will be part of tomorrow's update. I crafted this last night. Layered tin in 2 different colors/patterns but from the same Daher tray.  Linked with brass jump rings, creating a focal for a delicate bracelet design. Oval link brass chain and wire wrapped Czech glass in Picasso finish, with faceted Coral rounds dangling at one section and filigree charms on the chain at another section. The Vintaj brass toggle bar attaches to one side of the focal inside the large 15mm jump ring.




 Attached the two tin discs together using these clever screw rivets from Objects & Elements.
