Sawing Shapes from Tin

I am in love with the #7/0 Herkules saw blades!  They can actually cut the tiniest details from tin, once you get the hang of it.  Here's my latest -- doves cut from a floral tea tin, riveted onto a blackground (also tin), and collaged on the back with a beautiful French handwritten letter, possibly a love letter; I saw the word "coeur" which I do recognize, although I don't speak French, more's the pity.  These are really pretty on; the doves flutter.  They're available in my Etsy shop.

  1. hmmm you think those Herkules #7/0 saw blades could make even me enjoy sawing? The 7/0 blades I currently have, haven't done that for me. lol. These are really wonderful earrings. Love everything about them. The text is icing on the beautiful cake.
