Long spear shapes are enameled with a concentric circle pattern. Half the pattern is light blue and darker blue, and the other half is darker blue, light blue, and orange. Hoop ear wires are hand-formed oxidized sterling silver.
The copper shapes are carefully cleaned and prepared in order to accept the enamel. Then, I apply multiple layers of enamel, which is finely powdered glass. The layers of enamel are fused to the copper on both sides in a 1500 degree kiln. This firing process is repeated several times. Finally, the edges are sanded to expose the copper. And voila .... a vibrantly colored pair of enamel earrings which will make a great gift for yourself or a loved one.
The earrings measure 5/8" wide x 2 1/2" long from the top of the ear wire.
