Trashy tinsel dangle eye earring from vintage tins


Brightly colored vintage tins were repurposed for these dangle earrings.  Three tins were cold connected with eyelets to create these "eye of protection" dangles.  The colors primary colors are purples and pinks with circular flower piece for the iris.  The wire holding the eye in place is brass. From the top of the earwire to the bottom of the dangle is about an inch and a half.

Niobium is an element and the color is created by electrocurrent.  Niobium is hypoallergic.
