30 (thirty) metal discs from NON-vintage salvaged scrap metal.
For the outsider artist, the recycling addict or found object lover; I offer these to you.
I hand punch all these discs and the holes, then meticulously file the edges smooth. From expired auto and motorcycle license plates, tags and labels, metal tins and cans, name plates, etc. What I have in the working pile is always changing. Some qualifies as vintage material in Etsy's eyes but not mine. Scrap from 1980 thru today. All was headed for the landfill and has been collected by me over the last 20+ years. Every piece is from something unwanted, worn out or broken. Some have chippy paint, a bit of rust or a waffled surface. Some are shiny new looking.
Various sizes from 3/8 - 1" (9-25 mm) and various colors. Charm size.
The photos are examples of just some of what I have had in the past. You will get an assortment of 30 pieces that will probably include:
silver colored (aluminum and steel)
gold colored steel, aluminum and/or brass
4 with writing
Various color license plates with a reflective background including some with partial curves and lines from lettering.
Shiny metallic and foiled colors (some were from a laminated sheet over metal, others are just bright tints)
tin and other misc textures, patterns and colors.
I make the cuts to exclude identifiable ™ trade-names and ® recognizable logos or graphic designs. I'm confident you can use these without any worry about copyright infringement. No Coca Cola © or such. I stay away from that. I don't use any thin aluminum beverage cans.
All have 1/16 - 1/8" holes for hanging, located near an edge. Little ones sometime land in the middle 'cause they are hard for me to see. If the piece already had a hole or rivet, I let it stay as is. Some of these might be 1/4".
Obviously these are great jewelry dangles or cool scrapbooking embellishments.
Other specialty and vintage scrap metal discs can be found elsewhere in my shop as I have them available! See what I currently have listed here https://www.etsy.com/shop/rakubuttons?section_id=14336781

Shipping & policies
Generally my postage is reasonable. Just actual cost plus the mailer.
I will refund a fair amount of the postage when you buy multiple items but pay individually... IF I can ship together. Sometimes I under-caculate shipping on multiple purchases and you make out - I absorb the overages.
Most items I sell here are small and be shipped first class US Mail. I don't use priority unless I am forced to. First class is just as fast and saves you money.
I try to ship the next day but I can't always. Items will be shipped within three days.
I also reuse packaging. I pack well. Items are unlikely to be damaged during shipping. First Class mail includes tracking now so the info will be sent when I make out the label.
I love international customers but I will not ship to a few select areas (Nigeria and other locations with internal war). I'm so sorry that our postage fees went up so much!
UPDATE Jan 2018 for International Shipping and within the USA:
It just keeps going up :-(
I have estimated new postage costs. As I gain experience with the new postal charges, I will adjust them .... if they need it.
Meanwhile, I will refund any overage paid if it's $1 USD or more. Thanks for your patience as I learn.
I accept PayPal and Credit cards are now accepted through Etsy Direct Checkout.
