I thought as long as I had the soldering iron out, I'd make me some earrings. I started with an old rusted ceiling tin that I bought years ago. I was told these were from the 1880's and came out of a saloon that was in a ghost town in Montana. FUN!
It's a good story even if it isn't true. I cut out a small piece. Cleaned it up a bit. Wrapped it with copper foil and soldered it. I cleaned it and put a patina on it. I poked a hole it in and called it Macaroni ... no wait... sorry! EARRINGS.
A quick sloppy wire job and they are done.
|Simple, sweet and fun to wear.|

|Same idea, just a little different.|
This is just 2 cross charms with patina, 2 great
beads, a little wire and the ear wires. DONE!
I'm off to make some more. I like these. Next: different color and style beads, plus different shaped tin pieces. FUN!
See ya soon!
