Recycled tin and mixed metal butterfly collar necklace


total length of necklace

This pendant is a new look for the recycled tin line I call Trashy Tinsel.  No landing in the trash for this tin instead it has been upcycled to make this neck collar. The metals in the collar are copper and German silver.  The piece has been cold connected with rivets which add character to the design.  A blue butterfly from a candy tin makes up the central piece of this necklace.  The collar hangs from a bold copper chain which is finished with a two inch extension chain and a lobster clasp.

This piece is the first in a series of Trashy Tins I will be making of similar design. However, this is a one of a kind as no other piece will be exactly like this one.  Just not in my nature to do production work.  I enjoy the challenge of design too much.
