Sterling Silver Mixed Metal Tea Tin Column Earrings
These hand fabricated earrings feature small segments cut from a decorative tea tin and layered over sterling silver rectangles. Both the tea tin cut outs and the sterling silver rectangles have been given a curved form. The silver has been given an oxidized, brushed finish. The earrings measure approximately3/8" across and hang from sterling silver earwires. The total earring length is approximately 1-7/16”.
The tea tin series is part of my work for the 2019 Deja Vu Art and Fine Craft Show in celebration of America Recycles Day, featuring professional artists creating work made from recycled or repurposed materials. My work won Best of Show at this event in 2018.
