Tin Pan Alley

Is the theme this month over at 'Alter it Monthly'
Basically they want to see anything with metal, be it tins, little cases, or in my case a piece of metal on a project.
Some of you may remember me talking about a cuff i was making..
well here it is....
It's a canvas base, overlayed with some jute ribbon and then topped with embossed TSS metal
 A button fastening
Grungboard wings behind a ferro covered TH alterations keyhole  
Wrapped with TH alterations ferro covered keys either side.
I aged the gold coloured metal using some of my new hamatit coloured inka-gold.
This is a first attempt at a fabric/metal cuff and i've mixed feelings on how it's turned out...
Tell me what you think? and please be honest.
Have a fab bank holiday weekend.. think of me back to work tomorrow lol

I like it a lot. It all works together really well and having canvas as the base makes it more comfortable to wear.

Smashing cuff, I wear a wrist support for arthritis and that would look so much more attractive. Great entry
