Make It Metallic

Contributor post by Alicia from AliciasFindings

Metallic is defined as anything made of or looks like its made of metal. Different metals tend to be popular at different times. At this time silver seems to be the hot metallic. I know some who follow the trends, but truthfully its personal preference.

We want to see all your metallics. Tell us all about your metallic item. What is it? What does it do? And so on….

Pam from PearlsVintagebyPam says metallic means tin! I collect unique tins and I found this fantastic guitar tin. It’s clean, it shines and vibrates as it prepares to play for you! Rock and Roll!

Gillian from Gillisflowers said I like playing with different papers and often combine them in different ways. For this metallic looking hair comb I layered a VERY fine and delicate tissue paper in shades of blue on to a piece of silver foil paper. I love the finished effect and this hair comb really looks more like metal than paper.

Dawn from DeeDeeSupplies says being a supplies shop I have lots of metal in my shop!! These swirly beads are my favourite at the moment … I love the way they capture and reflect light due to their flowing shape.

Because of this swirly reflective quality they are not only great for statement jewellery but would also be great for home decor design such as wind chimes!

Dawn from DeeDeeDeesigns says this necklace is made from upcycled metal guitar strings wound with a thin metal jewellery wire. The memory wire necklace is also metal, and while the feature bead is plastic it has a statement metal presence.
