Regular price $45.00

Reversible Riveted  Lithograph Tin Textured Copper Bracelet.  I made this bracelet by riveting together lithograph tin discs I'd cut from a vintage tea tin & discs that I'd cut from copper I'd textured with vintage lace.  The bracelet is reversible, & can be worn with either the copper or tin discs showing.  Lithography is a printing method dating to the 1790s.  During the early & mid-20th century, lithography was used to produce brightly colored tin that was used in toys, TV trays, lunch boxes, candy containers, doll houses & other items.  The bracelet measures 7.75” long, with a tiny flower at the end.
