Vintage Floral Rectangular Earrings
Rectangular Art Nouveau style earrings with a glimpse of a gold tree in a flower patch and forest. They are lightweight like most of my vintage tin earrings. Lever back earwires are brass that is lead and nickel-free. Expect some imperfections such as light scratches and oxidized backs. These earrings are made from one of my oldest containers made in America.
My method: I hand cut the metal pieces, edges are sanded and then oxidized. A protective wax coating is applied to front and back of tin pieces as a final step.
Care: Avoid bathing and swimming with tin earrings as they prefer to be dry. They can be rinsed with water and gently wiped dry with a microfiber cloth. Despite the protective wax coating, take care not to store where they may be scratched.
