Tin Ornament.......


Well, I have to admit, I love working with tin......sort of like making jewelry. I love the effects you can get and it is always a problem solving situation, trying to find the right piece and right color to complete the piece. This is the second piece I have made and I am now on a mad search to find more tins......... I am trying some earrings, but have not completed them yet. Stay tuned to see what developes.  Posted by Picasa

I love watching YOU LOVE working with Tin !

This came out great !

I can tell you are loving it by the way it is turning out.

I can almost see you (well you know!) picking each piece of the tin out - holding it up - finding another that is just right...

This has always intrigued me - working with the tin.

I have enjoyed reading thru as you are learning and what you are trying.

Thank you for sharing!

(ps. Also really like these collage packets you are coming up with )

as us, linda- really great! looks sort of mexican to me. not that you asked but, that never stopped me (!) what about rusting up some of the pieces? unless that rusty thing is not your cup o tea. also, in the sundance catalogue, there are similar items- way overpriced but way cool.
