Poodles, Poodles Poodles

A client asked me to  make her some tin jewelry with poodles in it because she had some adorable poodles.

Not finding any poodle tin in my collection, I went shopping on the internet and found these poodle tin children's toys. (www.orphanedtreasures.etsy.com)

I purchased them and started working on the jewelry: earrings and a bracelet. My first attempts came out like this:

Although she liked the earrings, I changed them a bit match the poodle colors a bit more.  The bracelet was just a bit too wide to work well as a cuff.  So back to the studio and the 2nd design came out so much better:

I learned more about construction and she really liked the results.


  1. You did such a wonderful job! Thank you!! P.S. Keep your eye open for more poodle tins :)

  2. We had those exact play dishes when I was little! Fantastic work!
