I have been reworking and redesigning the blog look. My business name has evolved into East Street Tins. Hence, the new look.

I have been working on some BIG earrings-still light weight due to the tin but bolder in look. These are 1 5/8 " in diameter. Some are layered tin, Some are cut out with the jeweler's saw. One pair has domed discs in the center.

Yesterday I delivered a package of 15 pair of earrings and 3 necklaces to the Schweinfurth Art Center in Auburn. That felt good.

Later this month, I will be the craft portion of a fund raiser at the art center involving beer and cheese. My part will be with recycled beer cans and bottle caps. These are the proto types for that event.

Last bit of news is my tin jewelry shop name has now changed to East Street Tins.

I worked on and finished some new earrings today. They were from a lovely tin so I wanted to try a new way to form ear wires so that they would hang sideways.
