Luv a Great Tag!

I am not sure why, but I just LUV a great tag… it can have numbers, words, old, worn and it will still make me so happy and excited.

This necklace is made from a vintage mining car tag. This mining tag is well-worn. I wish I knew where it was placed on the car… Thought I would add a little sparkle to it and wired three beautiful crystals to it. The chain matches perfectly and has an embossed texture on it.

 A funky combination.

Enjoy your Saturday! Kris

    These mining tags were used to make sure all underground miners made it out safely after work. The tags were made in sets of 2 and one was hung in a bathhouse and the other was to be carried on the miner at all times, that way in case of “disaster” it could be easily known who was underground. Thought you might like this tidbit of info. Your work is great.

  2. Beth,
    Thank you so much for the background info on the Mining Tags… I really appreciate the info… They have very special meaning! Gosh, can you imagine how meaningful they are?

    Thanks for the compliments! Have a fantastic day! Kris
