favorite batch


Yesterday I worked long and hard in the studio on this batch of toggles.  These have to be my favorite batch ever. I love the animals and the graphics both so much!!

I can not pick a favorite. Actually I did pick a favorite. I kept the bird and put it into this bracelet. But not as a toggle, just as a focal element, with these leaf components from Vintaj Brass Co.


I used some tin from old spice cannisters, and a new hinged lidded tin that had on the four corners cute animals- a bird, squirrel, Owl, and rabbit. These are pretty much all one of a kind clasps. The animals are DEFINITELY one of a kind unless some day I can get my hands on these spice tins again.

Heading over to my webstore to list these now. Come on over!

  4. Love the blue animal circles! You picked good. We all deserve to keep something of what we make. I am usually the last to own one of my designs!!
    Thanks for sharing what you have been working on...

  5. Oh gosh golly, those are really lovely. One of the things I like most about your tin snippets is that each one is plucked and repurposed from a tin that you have collected. It's the wonderful curators eye in you that makes these so unique. Using the bird in that lovely bracelet is just icing on the cake! One more way to make these beauties sing.

I'm sorry to have to turn on the word verification here, but I got fed up with spammers comments!
