Tube Mouse – Tin with Necklace



Tube Mouse – Tin with Necklace

Visual art curiosity box, with wearable jewellery necklace

Gold Plated Copper, Gold Plated Silver, Reclaimed Wood, Vintage Tin

 

When travelling on ‘the Tube’ at quiet times of day, you can sometimes catch a glimpse of the tiny creatures making their home in the London Underground network. These little ‘Tube Mice’ are the inspiration for this design, with a playful pun as the mice are formed from metal tube.

 

Presented in an antique tin, this Tube Mouse sits on top of a wooden map of that echos the  transport network of London, and includes a golden chain that lays within the travel lines.

 

Display as an object d'art, plus the Tube mouse can also be removed to be worn as a necklace, then re-homed into the tin when the outing ends.

Mia has formed the body of the tube mouse from reclaimed copper pipe, plated in 9ct gold.

The chain is 9ct gold plated silver, 16”.

The wooden board in the tin has been laser cut to decorate with a map design.

Mia enjoys discovering items in flea markets and second hand stores for trinkets to support and inspire her designs, and bring an element of history to the pieces. This playful piece includes a vintage tin discovered on such a treasure hunt.

Please note that the vintage elements of the piece will contain signs of use over the years, what they lack in perfection, they make up for in character.

 

Additional jewellery items also available from the Tube Mice collection include a ring and earring, to create your own Tube Mouse family.
