Hello from Atlanta! 👋 I’m here for a 2 hour layover before heading to Haiti! I’m excited to meet the wonderful ladies of @haitimama  whom I’ve corresponded with over the past six or so months about this trip. I’m also looking forward to teaching their talented artisans new jewelry making skills and techniques. And last, but definitely not least, I can’t wait to see the beautiful country of Haiti! . While packing for my trip, I took a quick snapshot of the jewelry I brought with me to wear... pieces that I find myself putting on day after day. Most are Saffron, but I’d be lying if I said I only wear my own jewelry! There are two other pairs of earrings pictured that are not my own, but that I love dearly. The brass open doorways/steps by @whileodinsleeps  and the silver snakes that give the illusion of slithering right through your earlobe purchased at @vix_emporium  and made by @brucebakerstudio.  .#makershelpingmakers  #shareyourskills  #payitforward  #vintage  #vintagetin  #tin  #tinjewelry  #handmade  #vintagestyle  #fleamarketfinds  #fleamarketstyle  #thriftstorefinds  #treasure  #collection  #saffroncreations  #recycled  #upcycled  #deco  #artdeco  #decojewelry  #artnouveau

I arrived in Port au Prince, Haiti yesterday afternoon with a warm welcome from Tausha and Talia of @haitimama.  The walled headquarters of this nonprofit is stunning.... like a step back in time with it’s dramatic arched doorways and boldly patterned tile floors. Although, outside the walls there is a sense of turmoil. In large part due to the country’s inability to afford gas imports, there’s a fuel shortage. People can’t get gas for vehicles and can’t get to work and school. We were worried our first day of training wouldn’t happen because the artisans couldn’t get here, but they made it! It was a wonderful first day. I see a lot of potential and am excited to work with them again tomorrow! .#makershelpingmakers  #payitforward  #shareyourskills  #vintage  #vintagetin  #tinjewelry  #handmade  #recycled  #upcycled  #haiti  #portauprince  #teach  #jewelryteacher  #statementearrings  #saffroncreations  #donttakelifeforgranted

I’m working on wholesale samples for my website update and thinking I may include these (once finished) in the Fall Collection launch. This Florentine pattern is such a stunner, isn’t it? . PS: Thanks to everyone who entered the giveaway! I’ll announce the winner this afternoon 😊 .#vintage  #vintagetin  #tin  #tinjewelry  #handmade  #wholesalejewelry  #vintagestyle  #fleamarketfinds  #fleamarketstyle  #thriftstorefinds  #recycled  #upcycled  #artdeco  #artdecojewelry  #saffroncreations  #deco  #artnouveau  #wip  #process

Is it just me? Or have I been talking about the Fall Collection for ages? 🤭Sorry! But, guess what?! Friday is THE DAY! I will be posting all the jewelry from the Collection tomorrow in my stories, so if you have a question about something specific, please respond to that particular photo.

I’ve been having fun playing with three dimensional designs recently. I like this idea of looking through a window into another world. I’m imagining this design in bold red with a glowing gold window!🌹 .#vintage  #vintagetin  #tin  #tinjewelry  #handmade  #vintagestyle  #fleamarketfinds  #fleamarketstyle  #thriftstorefinds  #recycled  #upcycled  #saffroncreations  #statementearrings  #modern  #decojewelry  #artdeco  #artdecojewelry  #artnouveau  #portal  #philly

All of these earrings were made from vintage tins! Most of the tins that I use were manufactured in the 1960s and 70s in England, but others are from Germany, Holland, and even Brazil. Some tins are as old as 70 years! This collection is on it’s way to @blisscoop  in Sugar Loaf, NY. Which pair is your favorite? .#vintage  #vintagetin  #tin  #tinjewelry  #handmade  #vintagestyle  #fleamarketfinds  #fleamarketstyle  #recycled  #upcycled  #saffroncreations  #deco  #artdeco  #decojewelry  #artdecojewelry  #artnouveau  #artnouveaujewelry  #statementearrings  #mcm  #midcenturymodern  #mod  #wholesalejewelry  #treasure  #philly

Thanks for an incredible Fall Collection launch yesterday, friends! Many pieces are sold out, but there are still goodies left. Those remaining will be posted live to the website today for all to browse and enjoy. Here is a photo of my vintage tin haul from a local rummage sale last night (+ Olive the cat). I scored them all for $14! I’ll post some detail shots in my stories. .#vintage  #vintagetin  #tin  #tinjewelry  #handmade  #vintagestyle  #fleamarketfinds  #fleamarketstyle  #thriftstorefinds  #antiquetin  #collection  #recycled  #upcycled  #artdeco  #deco  #decojewelry  #artnouveau  #curiouscat  #haul  #score  #saffroncreations

We’ve resisted for years, but I’m going to bite the bullet and get a @costco  membership today. I worry that it will make me buy more than we need, but just getting basics will be a money saver right? Are you a Costco/BJ’s shopper? What do you get there? . These Big Mamas are 2.5” long and 2” across yet super light and airy. .#vintage  #vintagetin  #tin  #tinjewelry  #handmade  #saffroncreations  #vintagestyle  #blueandwhite  #bigearrings  #statementearrings  #fleamarketfinds  #fleamarketstyle  #thriftstorefinds  #recycled  #upcycled  #deco  #artdeco  #decojewelry  #artnouveau  #mod  #philly

✨🍂Fall Collection 2019🍂✨ All the jewelry sneak peeks are currently posted in my stories. Which pair are you going to snag? 🤔 . Yesterday, my 9 year old walked to school and home from school for the first time. It feels like a very important milestone in his life. The courage, pride and independence that he felt just beamed across his face. It’s a funny feeling, the first time your child says goodbye to you and walks away alone. I’m so proud. 😭❤️ .#vintage  #vintagetin  #tin  #tinjewelry  #collection  #falljewelry  #vintagestyle  #fleamarketfinds  #fleamarketstyle  #thriftstorefinds  #artdeco  #decojewelry  #artdecojewelry  #artnouveau  #artnouveaujewelry  #recycled  #upcycled  #statementearrings  #mcm  #midcenturymodern  #saffroncreations  #handmade

Cacti, houseplants and hanging planters, oh my! 🌵🌿🏺🎍 I am so excited to add this George W. Horner & Co vintage tin to my ‘No Cut Collection’. I’ve wanted to get my hands on one for a while because I just adore the mid century style and bright, happy colors. Each little plant and vessel has such personality! . I’m also proud of that relatively smooth 360 spin I managed to do with one hand. That took several awkward attempts. 😆 . While most kids in Philly are going back to school today, we still have one more day of summer..... so we’re headed to the beach! .#vintage  #vintagetin  #tin  #tinjewelry  #handmade  #vintagestyle  #fleamarketfinds  #fleamarketstyle  #thriftstorefinds  #recycled  #upcycled  #collection  #saffroncreations  #mcm  #midcenturymodern  #midcenturymod  #midmod  #midcentury  #plantlady  #houseplants  #cactus  #planter  #vintageplanter  #cookietin  #antiquetin

Remember these earrings that I almost named Scarafaggio, (which I thought meant beetle in Italian, but actually means cockroach in Italian🤣)? Well, I decided to call it Ladybird, because they also remind me of 🐞.

Just about two weeks until my trip to Haiti! @haitimama  was kind enough to entrust me with helping to flesh out their jewelry studio tools and supplies.

This gorgeously detailed tin was made for the Bahlsen company, a German producer of biscuits and cakes. Started in Hannover, Germany by Hermann Bahlsen in 1889, the business is still carried on by his descendants there today. Fun fact: Bahlsen is the largest family-run biscuit producer in the world! I just love the beautiful, golden scene on this tin. The trees and foliage are so funky! And of course, the graceful deer racing across all four sides. . Historic illustration and info taken from the @bahlsencookies  website. .#vintagetin  #vintage  #tin  #tinjewelry  #vintagestyle  #handmade  #collection  #antiquetin  #fleamarketfinds  #fleamarketstyle  #thriftstorefinds  #recycled  #upcycled  #saffroncreations  #germany  #mcm  #mod  #midcenturymodern  #statementearrings  #treasure  #fleamarketdecor  #decojewelry  #artdeco  #cookietin

My sweet cat Olive has hyperthyroidism so I have to give him a pill everyday. Usually he’s very good and lets me drop it in the back of his throat, then hold him and pet his neck til it goes down. Today he decided he wasn’t having it and proceeded to scratch the crap out of me instead. I cried. I guess we all have those kind of days, right? I adore this mid century serving tray and couldn’t wait to make some beautiful earrings with it. Thankfully I have a few of the trays, so I was able to use one in this photo as well. .#vintage  #vintagetin  #tin  #tinjewelry  #handmade  #vintagestyle  #fleamarketfinds  #fleamarketstyle  #thriftstorefinds  #recycled  #upcycled  #midcenturymodern  #midmod  #mcm  #midcentury  #vintagepink  #deco  #artdeco  #decojewelry  #statementearrings  #artdecojewelry  #saffroncreations  #philly  #collection  #falljewelry

This taste of Fall in Philly has been incredible. Temps in the 70s and I’m not sweating in the studio. I would still like to squeeze in one more beach day before the kids head back to school. 🤞 These earrings will be released with the Fall Collection to Saffron Savvy members on September 6th.

Hi! It’s me, Devin, the person behind Saffron Creations. If you entered the giveaway from yesterday’s post, thank you! You’ve helped me to meet (and exceed) 4,000 followers. Yay! And I can’t begin to explain all the entertainment and laughter I’ve enjoyed, reading about your childhood nicknames. My childhood nickname, given to me by my mom, was Devo. Yes, like the eighties musical group. 🤣 And she still calls me Devo. Anyway, welcome! ❤️ So, a little more about me... I live in Philly, Pa with my husband, two sons, dog and cat. I love exploring the woods with my kids, reading cooking magazines and watching horror movies. If I had more free time, I’d love to learn to sew my own clothes. If you have a minute, tell me a little bit about yourself!

This Art Nouveau vintage tin by Artstyle Chocolates makes my heart hurt it’s so gorgeous. Needless to say, it’s a recent addition to my No-Cut Collection. Sadly though, I wasn’t able to find any history about the company, but based on the markings on the bottom, the chocolates were manufactured in Boston and St Louis and the tin was manufactured in New York in the 1920s/30s. Enjoy! .#vintage  #vintagetin  #tin  #tinjewelry  #vintagestyle  #antiquetin  #treasure  #collection  #fleamarketfinds  #fleamarketstyle  #thriftstorefinds  #artnouveau  #artnouveaustyle  #artdeco  #deco  #vintagelandscape  #philly  #boston  #stlouis  #madeinusa  #saffroncreations  #fleamarketdecor  #artnouveaulovers  #artnouveaujewelry

It was hard to capture the delicate color of these earrings. The best way I can describe it, is a minty, sea foam green. They’re just bubbling over with Art Deco goodness.... aren’t they so classy? Don’t you just want to put them on and dance the Lindy Hop? These earrings were made from a vintage, Art Deco style candy tin from Brazil. .#vintage  #vintagetin  #tin  #tinjewelry  #vintagestyle  #deco  #artdeco  #decojewelry  #artdecoearrings  #statementearrings  #artnouveau  #artnouveaujewelry  #recycled  #upcycled  #fleamarketfinds  #fleamarketstyle  #thriftstorefinds  #collection  #saffroncreations  #philly  #1920sfashion

I adore the jewel tones in this vintage fruit cake tin, don’t you? So perfect for Fall. Swipe through to see one of many earring styles made from this lovely tin... available in small and large. I named this style Scarafaggio (so fancy, right?). It thought it meant beetle in Italian, but now I’m seeing that it means cockroach. 🤣 Maybe I should rethink that. . Today is the last day of camp for my boys, which means Mama Camp for the next two weeks till school starts. Maybe I’ll teach them to cut up tins 🤔😅 .

Thanks to everyone who weighed in on the fruit cake tin poll the other day! Based on all the votes from Instagram and Facebook, it was literally a tie! So, I will be releasing jewelry made from both tins (the “new”-looking shiny one and the faded one) in the Fall Collection. Here is a new design that came from the need to use up beautiful scraps. I’ll post more about it in my stories! ✨ .#vintage  #vintagetin  #tin  #tinjewelry  #handmade  #vintagestyle  #antiquetin  #fleamarketfinds  #fleamarketstyle  #thriftstorefinds  #saffroncreations  #recycled  #upcycled  #mod  #modern  #deco  #artdeco  #decojewelry  #artdecojewelry  #statementearrings  #artdecoearrings  #philly  #collection

For those of you on the edge of your seat about my brussels sprout saga, I have surrendered. The harlequin bugs won. I cut them all down today... sooner than I would’ve liked, but some brussels sprouts are better than none! There are still quite a bit, actually (scroll through for a photo). I wish I could say that my family will be thrilled to hear what’s on the menu for dinner tonight, but let’s be real. The kids won’t touch them. My husband might eat a few to humor me, but I’m the one who will be eating them. 😆 are you a fan of brussels sprouts? . The deep, richly saturated colors in these new earrings make me yearn for Fall. Find them in the Fall Collection on 9/6 if you’re a Savvy member.... and if there are any left, 9/7 to the public. .#vintage  #vintagetin  #tin  #tinjewelry  #handmade  #vintagestyle  #fallcollection  #collection  #artnouveau  #artnouveaujewelry  #fleamarketfinds  #fleamarketstyle  #thriftstorefinds  #fruitcaketin  #saffroncreations  #recycled  #upcycled  #philly  #phillymade  #statementearrings  #artnouveauearrings

Have you seen today’s stories? I’m comparing two of the same vintage fruit cake tin. Although, one looks like it was closed up in a box for 60 years (top) and one looks like it was well used and loved (bottom). Vibrant colors and a shiny finish vs muted colors and a matte finish. Tell me which you prefer in the comments and the winning tin will be part of the Fall Collection to be released on 9/6! .#vintage  #vintagetin  #tin  #tinjewelry  #vintagestyle  #handmade  #fruitcaketin  #fleamarketfinds  #fleamarketstyle  #thriftstorefinds  #treasure  #collection  #saffroncreations  #recycled  #upcycled  #artdeco  #decojewelry  #artnouveau  #artnouveaujewelry  #antiquetin  #mod  #modern  #statementearrings

A little glimpse into my process! You may have seen the video of me breaking down this Brazilian vintage tin a few days ago. This photo shows the next steps, which includes using disc cutters of various shapes to piece together my vision. I add hammered wire to give it an airy quality and sheet metal as a contrasting design element to the vintage patterns. .

✨The date has been set! The Fall Collection will be released to Saffron Savvy members on Friday, September 6th @  12 noon EST.✨ . I wanted to send a heartfelt ‘thank you’ to everyone for the response to my exciting announcement yesterday. There was a serious outpouring of love! Send your love to @haitimama  by following them! Donate to their righteous cause! Help Haiti Mama reach their goal to send 125 Haitian children to school by pledging on August 13th (all donations will be doubled during their pledge drive!).

✨Announcement time!!!✨ If you’ve been following along in my stories, you may have seen a few hints. I’m SO excited to announce that this September I’m traveling to Haiti!! So, let me back up a little and start from the beginning. Back in February, Tausha of @haitimama  reached out to me with a proposition: would I consider coming to Haiti to teach their jewelry artisans new skills and designs? After learning about the mission of this incredible grassroots nonprofit, I jumped at the chance. It’s hard to explain all the good that Haiti Mama does, but to put it simply, they reunite families. Thousands of Haitian children are in orphanages simply because their parents can’t afford to care for them. Imagine: the thought of sending your child to an orphanage is absolutely devastating to say the very least, but what if this is the only option to feed, clothe and educate your child? Haiti Mama is working hard to change this all too familiar story. “We work with the Haitian Government to reunite children in orphanages with their families. We empower two generations of each family through education + employment services to break the cycle of poverty. We use evidence-based social work practice + theory to achieve outcomes.” -Haiti Mama I can’t wait to teach Haiti Mama’s artisans some metal jewelry magic during my visit in a few weeks... and humbled to think that I may play a small part in reuniting and keeping Haitian families together. . 📸 @laurenlouneal  via @haitimama  .#keepfamiliestogether  #haiti  #haitimama  #payitforward  #familyfirst  #saffroncreations  #vintage  #vintagetin  #tin  #tinjewelry  #handmade  #fleamarketfinds  #fleamarketstyle  #thriftstorefinds  #vintagestyle  #recycled  #upcycled  #philly  #phillmade  #shareknowledge  #grateful

I’m looking back on this serene photo shoot of the wildly talented @iamronnicole  modeling a custom pair of Saffron earrings. Isn’t she lovely? I’m so overdue for a new photo shoot, it isn’t even funny! Can I pull it together before the holidays? It would be a miracle... .

I love knowing the story behind an artists heart. When Devin of @saffroncreations  was beginning her career as an artist she was given a small vintage candy tin that belonged to her grandmother that would become the inspiration for her artistic direction. All of her beautiful jewelry is made from various vintage tins, creating one of a kind, repurposed jewelry. Her love of antiques + vintage along with a heart for the transformative nature of upcycling resulted in a beautiful tribute of her grandmother. .

I have a time lapse process video to share with you this Friday morning! Today I’m breaking down a vintage Meister Art Deco tin made in Brazil. I’ve upcycled a tin like this twice in the past and it’s a tricky one! It has a very sturdy convex shape, so rather than try to flatten it, I work with its natural curves. The earring design in the second photo is similar to my Temple Earrings... just sort of flipped over! 🙃 I have an exciting announcement coming soon and I’m having some fun with a few hints in my stories. Yesterday’s story revealed that I need to renew my passport... what will today’s story reveal? 😉 . PS: Gretel was glued to my side during this video because it was thunder-storming outside! 🌩 😥 .#vintage  #vintagetin  #tin  #tinjewelry  #handmade  #vintagestyle  #saffroncreations  #fleamarketfinds  #fleamarketstyle  #thriftstorefinds  #recycled  #upcycled  #collection  #process  #treasure  #processvideo  #wip  #behindthescenes  #jewelrystudio  #artdeco  #deco  #decojewelry  #greatgatsby  #downtonabbey

Can you believe today is August 1st?! That means summer is slowly winding down. It also means I can finally turn the page on my son’s Harry Potter calendar! I’ve been looking at Voldemort’s hideous face every day for the entire month of July. 😂😭 It’s the little things. . This is the first pair of Trinity Earrings I’ve ever made in sterling silver. I’m still partial to brass, but what do you think? .#vintage  #vintagetin  #tin  #tinjewelry  #handmade  #vintagestyle  #fleamarketfinds  #fleamarketstyle  #thriftstorefinds  #recycled  #upcycled  #treasure  #collection  #statementearrings  #deco  #artdeco  #decojewelry  #artnouveau  #vintagetray  #saffroncreations  #philly

✨Custom Temple Earrings✨ . I picked up some neem oil today because it’s recommended to help rid our garden of the harlequin bugs that have been ravaging our Brussels sprouts. I figured I’d shake it up with some water and spritz it all over the plants, but the neem oil came in a little tub because it’s solid at room temperature (like coconut oil). So now I’m stumped. Anyone have experience with this? Better start Googling... .#vintage  #vintagetin  #tin  #tinjewelry  #handmade  #saffroncreations  #recycled  #upcycled  #fleamarketfinds  #fleamarketstyle  #thriftstorefinds  #deco  #artdeco  #artnouveau  #treasure  #collection  #antiquetin  #organicgardening  #statementearrings  #madeinphilly  #philly

This collection is headed to a new retailer in Frankfort, Michigan called Shelter 336. They requested jewelry made with tins from my Summer Collection. . Every wholesale purchase is made to order based on the requests of that particular shop. I’d love to curate a Collection for your shop! Or, if you know of a shop that would be a good fit for Saffron, let me know! Wholesale orders are placed via my website so you can do it anytime day or night. Just message me for the link and password access. .#vintage  #vintagetin  #tin  #tinjewelry  #handmade  #vintagestyle  #fleamarketfinds  #fleamarketstyle  #thriftstorefinds  #collection  #recycled  #upcycled  #saffroncreations  #deco  #artdeco  #decojewelry  #artnouveau  #mod  #modern  #mcm

I’m going to miss these stunning Colorado mountains, but it’s good to be home. My thoughts are shifting toward fall and I’m ready to get back to work. I’m finishing up a wholesale order for a new retailer in Michigan and if you placed an order via my website over the past week, it will ship out today or tomorrow. PSA: don’t take a red-eye flight on Frontier Airlines. The seats are hard as a rock and they don’t recline. Sucks big time. .#vintage  #vintagetin  #tin  #tinjewelry  #visit  #handmade  #visitcolorado  #momtrepreneur  #fleamarketfinds  #fleamarketstyle  #thriftstorefinds  #treasure  #collection  #coloradomountains  #chiefmountain  #saffroncreations  #philly  #madeinphilly  #familytime  #familyvacation  @visitevergreen  @visitdenver

For the final day of #sevendaysofvintagetins  I’m sharing a collection of tins from old-school American made products (minus the Tetley tea tin, that’s English). I love all the vintage typography on these. My grandfather always had a tin of Bachman Pretzels near his recliner in the living room. Do any of these strike a sentimental chord with you? Thanks for following along this past week! I had fun sharing my vintage tin collection with you. I’m considering making it a regular thing here on my feed. Maybe weekly as #vintagetintuesday ? . We return home to Philadelphia late tonight on a red-eye with the kids. Wish me luck! 😅🤞 .#vintage  #vintagetin  #tin  #tinjewelry  #antiquetin  #fleamarketfinds  #fleamarketstyle  #thriftstorefinds  #collection  #treasure  #handmade  #saffroncreations  #recycled  #upcycled  #vintagetypography  #madeinamerica  #philly  #madeinphilly

Happy Friday and day six of #sevendaysofvintagetins ! Made by Stewart & Young in Glasgow, this stunning early Edwardian candy tin has some really lovely illustrations, including those sweet little thistles (my personal favorite!). Produced as a souvenir for the Scottish National Exhibition of 1908, The Steamship Brand was established to supply all nations. Stewart & Young was a very large and well known manufacturer of jams, jellies and candies of all sorts that opened in the late 1800s. Using their own patented modern machinery and equipment, as well as over 600 employees, Stewart & Young created “a bewildering variety of sundries” “including novelties in penny, half-penny, four-a-penny and eight-a-penny goods”. .#vintage  #vintagetin  #tin  #antiquetin  #vintagestyle  #fleamarketfinds  #fleamarketstyle  #vintagestyle  #collection  #treasure  #saffroncreations  #candytin  #scottish  #edwardian  #handmade  #recycled  #upcycled  #steamship  #philly  #statementearrings

For day 5 of #sevendaysofvintagetins , I’m showcasing a selection classic black tins from my collection. The beautiful, deep black background creates a dramatic look when combined with bright florals and metallics. . We are having so much fun in Colorado! The first day was a struggle with altitude sickness, but thankfully it didn’t last. We’ve explored the cute town of Evergreen, climbed a mountain, scootered around downtown Denver, and today we’re headed to the trails of @redrocksco  .#vintage  #vintagetin  #tin  #tinjewelry  #vintagestyle  #fleamarketfinds  #fleamarketstyle  #thriftstorefinds  #treasure  #collection  #blackfloral  #recycled  #upcycled  #saffroncreations  #deco  #artdeco  #artnouveau  #mod  #modern  #mcm  #antiquetins  #statementearrings  #philly

I had so much fun researching today’s installment of #sevendaysofvintagetins.  When I found this tin in an antique shop, I knew nothing about it, and despite the rough condition, I was so drawn to the Art Deco style and dramatic colors. The box, once containing chocolates, was used as promotion for the Hotel New Yorker, pictured on the tin lid, in NYC in the 30’s. This incredible hotel opened in January of 1930 as a marvel of modern sophistication and technology. It’s 53 stories contained 2,500 rooms, a bank, a 50 chair barber salon, it’s own underground power plant (the largest in the USA, at the time) and it’s own radio station broadcasting live big-band music from it’s Terrace Room, across the country. This room also featured a retractable floor revealing an ice skating rink below, so diners could watch “gorgeous girls and foremost stars of the flashing blades” while they ate a meal or sipped cocktails. In one of the photos above, you can see a brochure boasting guests’ access the hotel’s private underground tunnel to Penn Station! 😱 (It’s now completely sealed off.) Despite all of the state of the art facilities, the Hotel New Yorker couldn’t escape the Great Depression and was practically doomed since it’s opening. The hotel filed for bankruptcy in 1966, closed in 1972 and was sadly, abandoned. Strangely enough, a church purchased the New Yorker in ‘76 and used it as it’s mission center until 1994, when it reopened as a functioning hotel. . Information and photos obtained from “Exploring the Forgotten Art Deco Artifacts of the New Yorker Hotel” by Luke Spencer, 2016. .#vintage  #vintagetin  #tin  #tinjewelry  #vintagestyle  #artdeco  #deco  #artdecojewelry  #antiquetin  #nyc  #hotelnewyorker  #newyorkerhotel  #decodecor  #saffroncreations  #candytin  #artdecofont  #recycled  #upcycled  #nychistory

Today for #sevendaysofvintagetins  I’m sharing one from my No Cut Collection. This etched brass box was manufactured for F.H. Roberts Company’s Apollo Chocolates in Boston, Massachusetts. They were hugely popular in the early 1900s with their unique packaging and advertising. This is technically not a tin box but rather brass, but isn’t it a beauty?! One of my collection favorites for sure. .#vintage  #vintagetin  #tin  #tinjewelry  #vintagestyle  #vintagebox  #handmade  #saffroncreations  #recycled  #upcycled  #deco  #artdeco  #artnouveau  #antiquebox  #fleamarketfinds  #fleamarketstyle  #thriftstorefinds  #vintageadvertising

These gilded red Swing Earrings have me daydreaming of Fall 🥀🍂 We leave for Colorado tomorrow (yay for cooler weather!) and I have a fun idea for posts while I’m out of the studio: Seven Days of Vintage Tins! Each day I will feature either a single tin or a themed grouping of tins from my collection. I’ll tag each post with #sevendaysofvintagetins  and you can follow the hashtag, if you so desire, so you don’t miss anything. My fingers are crossed for a good internet connection during our trip, but I’ve heard it’s spotty, so we’ll see.🤞 .#vintage  #vintagetin  #tin  #tinjewelry  #handmade  #vintagestyle  #dreamingoffall  #fleamarketfinds  #fleamarketstyle  #thriftstorefinds  #treasure  #collection  #saffroncreations  #recycled  #upcycled  #deco  #artdeco  #artnouveau  #mod  #modern  #falljeweley

We’re melting here in Philly and it doesn’t help that the AC in our car only works when it wants to, which is maybe 20% of the time. But man, when it works, it’s like “oooh heaven is a place on earth” 🎶. (Handmaid’s Tale anyone? #sorrynotsorry 🙈) .

Hello! There are some new followers around here... welcome and thanks for following along! If you’re curious about my jewelry, I’m happy to tell you a little bit about it. Saffron jewelry is handmade from vintage tins. These tins once held candy, tea or cookies and most were manufactured in mid-century England. I collect these beautifully patterned containers (sometimes trays) and cut them up! Then I give these little bits of history new life by crafting them into modern jewelry. Earwires are always sterling silver or 14k goldfilled and the jewelry is unbelievably lightweight. If you have questions about my process, tools, etc, I’d be happy to answer them. 😊 This video features the Taking Turns Necklace which layers 3 domed discs of vintage tin. You get 3 completely different pendants on one necklace! There are currently two available on the website. Thanks for reading! .#takingturns  #vintage  #vintagetin  #tin  #tinjewelry  #vintagestyle  #fleamarketfinds  #fleamarketstyle  #thriftstorefinds  #collection  #treasure  #deco  #artdeco  #decojewelry  #artnouveaujewelry  #mod  #modern  #mcm  #recycled  #upcycled  #saffroncreations

We still have a good month and a half! 😅 I did start seeing back to school stuff in stores... but that’s just malarkey. . I’ll have a few more of these stunners in the Summer Collection, made from the most lovely aqua and gold vintage candy tin.

•Temple Earrings• Momma size and baby size! No, no, babies can’t wear these, but it’s nice to have options. The large is 3.5” long and small is 2.5” long. These were cut from a massive pretzel tin that I found in an antique shop recently. When I shop for vintage tins, I need to imagine small bits of the pattern... separate from the rest. Almost like using a macro lens. That’s what you can see me doing in the second photo: using my fingers as a little frame to visualize the tin as jewelry. Thanks to @eriningraffiaphotography  for capturing this moment for me. . These Temple Earrings (and so much more!) will be available to Saffron Savvy members very soon. You will receive an email at 12:00 noon on Tuesday, July 16th with a link to a hidden webpage to shop the Summer Collection. 24 hours later, what remains of the Collection will go live to the general public.

Oh, I just adore this pattern of bold colors! Not quite red, and not quite orange... just right up my alley of vintage style. I love to utilize patterns with a decorative edging and this tin had some gorgeous material to work with. So, you guys went nuts for the earrings I posted yesterday! Yes, there truly is just one pair and no, you can’t buy it today. 😆 Those earrings will be released with all the other jewelry (including the ones in this photo) on 7/16 @  12:00 noon to Saffron Savvy members. What I AM going to do, is try my best to make some more similar pairs to add to the Collection. I’ll keep you posted! ❤️🙏 .#vintage  #vintagetin  #tin  #tinjewelry  #handmade  #retro  #vintagestyle  #mod  #modern  #mcm  #boho  #midcenturymodern  #saffroncreations  #summerjewelry  #collection  #fleamarketfinds  #fleamarketstyle  #thriftstorefinds  #recycled  #upcycled

It’s a short work week with the July 4th holiday on Thursday, and I’m having a hard time getting in production mode. One of the challenges with having my studio at home is getting so easily distracted by household responsibilities. I swear, just walking to get a glass of water has the potential for a half hour of: “let me just pick up those toys, pop the clothes in the washer, let the dog out and pluck my eyebrows”. 😂🙈 . This jewelry is part of an order for new Saffron retailer @dandelionwisheshopewell  ! And by “new”, I don’t just mean new to me, but also a brand new store that hasn’t even opened yet! So exciting. .#vintage  #vintagetin  #tinjewelry  #handmade  #vintagestyle  #thriftstorefinds  #fleamarketfinds  #fleamarketstyle  #collection  #deco  #decojewelry  #treasure  #artnouveaujewelry  #mod  #modern  #mcm  #recycled  #upcycled  #philly  #madeinphilly  #saffroncreations  #statementearrings  #wholesalejewelry  #jewelrypackaging

One of my favorite parts of my session with Devin of @saffroncreations  was getting to see what she saw. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It’s one thing to look at a vintage tin in an antique shop and think “That’s pretty cool”, but another entirely to have the transformational vision to see what it could become. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ She always seemed to know which part of the pattern would look just right with a particular shape and how to get the most out of each tin. Back at her studio, she was decisive and worked quickly to transform this dragon into something entirely new. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . . . . . #follow_this_light  #thesincerestoryteller  #documentaryphotography  #makersession  #brandingsession  #brandingphotography  #behindthescenes  #whyilovephilly  #igers_philly  #phillyphotographer  #lifestyleheadshots  #jewelrydesigner  #saffroncreations  #lightinspired  #highcontrast  #details  #detailshot  #mainlinephotographer

My latest infatuation is vintage metal TV trays! They have so much beautiful material to work with. Here is a time lapse video of me cutting up a gorgeous yellow/green floral TV tray from the 1960s. Swipe through to see a pair of earrings made from it! You may notice that I put on leather work gloves in the middle of the video. I often forget to put them on until I hurt myself. That reminds me pretty quickly 😅 I plan to do a lot more process videos like this and I’m learning by experimenting. If you have suggestions/tips for video creating and editing apps/programs, please let me know! .#vintage  #vintagetin  #tin  #tinjewelry  #tvtray  #tvtrays  #vintagetray  #vintagestyle  #fleamarketfinds  #fleamarketstyle  #thriftstorefinds  #treasure  #collection  #recycled  #upcycled  #handmade  #saffroncreations  #mod  #mcm  #retro  #sixties  #1960s  #1960sfashion  #statementearrings  #hoops

These are a few of my favorite things… ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’ve been a fan of Saffron Creations (@saffroncreations ) since my friend Laura introduced me to her work. Devin makes one-of-a-kind earrings and necklaces out of vintage tins. If you’re not already a fan, hop over to her page to see the amazingness. I may or may not have added a few pieces to my collection after our session (shhhhh). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Devin let me tag along to an antique store where she walked away with a treasure trove of new (old) tins. Getting to combine my love of thrifting with photography was a win-win. I even found a sweet little quilt that I’m saving for newborn sessions.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . . . . . #follow_this_light  #thesincerestoryteller  #makersession  #portraits  #jewelrydesigner  #saffroncreations  #vintagetins  #philadelphiaphotographer  #lifestylebrandphotography  #thriftstorefinds  #phillyfamilyphotographer  #igers_philly

These Half Moon Trio Hoops (and so many more goodies) are headed to @verdephilly  as we speak. The kids are at camp and I’m feeling motivated!💥 It’s going to be a hot one in Philly today, so I’ll have the fan blasting. Still haven’t gotten the air conditioners in 😑 .#vintage  #vintagetin  #tin  #tinjewelry  #handmade  #floraljewelry  #hoops  #statementearrings  #vintagestyle  #thriftstorefinds  #fleamarketfinds  #fleamarketstyle  #deco  #artdeco  #recycled  #upcycled  #mod  #sixties  #bohojewelry  #boho  #saffroncreations  #philly  #madeinphilly  #centercityphilly

This week is all about filling wholesale orders! Two in Pennsylvania, two in New Jersey and one in North Carolina. I love sending my little babes out into the world. .#vintage  #vintagetin  #tin  #tinjewelry  #vintagestyle  #thriftstorefinds  #fleamarketfinds  #fleamarketstyle  #process  #wholesalejewelry  #recycled  #upcycled  #saffroncreations  #deco  #artdeco  #mod  #modern  #boho  #mcm  #statementearrings  #philly  #madeinphilly

I’m really digging the retro-beachy look these hoops have. Like a seventies lawn chair in the most wonderful way! .#vintage  #retro  #70s  #70sfashion  #vintagetin  #tin  #tinjewelry  #handmade  #recycled  #upcycled  #saffroncreations  #thriftstorefinds  #fleamarketfinds  #fleamarketstyle  #treasure  #collection  #vintagestyle  #seventiesstyle  #hoops  #philly  #madeinphilly

I don’t always laugh while staring out windows. But when I do, it’s because I’m in an antique shop with an armload of vintage tins. 👀💪😆 .
