Tin Moon Madness

Hello, my Beady Friends!
Happy September!  My workshop is in full Halloween mode now!

    I happened to find this Chocolate tin from at least 20 years ago in one of my nightstand drawers.  It was given to me long before I started making jewelry, so until a few days ago, it was just a cute tin box.  But now, I'm looking at through new eyes!

I put my disc cutter to work and began to punch out as many discs as possible, not wasting one bit of this adorable tin.  For this design, I'll just be using the large stripe discs and will save the spooky eyes for another day.

The lovely enameled bats are by Israeli bead artist, Pearly Karpel. 

Thanks for stopping by to see what's happing on my worktable today!  I'm excited about Autumn and looking forward to digging deep into all kinds of Halloween designs for the next couple of months!

  1. Wonderful design and use of materials! Just love them!!!

  2. I love these! So cool. I have some fun little tins and this makes me wish I had a metal punch!

    1. Thank you, Linda - you can hand cut them and they will look great, evem more of a vintage look. It requires more filing though but for just a couple of pieces it's not that much work.
