Tribal Enamel Earrings, Copper Glass Enamel, OOAK
These earrings are hand-sawed from copper sheet into an oval shape with a cut out at the top. They are enameled in a rich cobalt blue with pink circle shapes, and with hand-painted gold accents. Hoop-style ear wires are hand-made from sterling silver. Perfect to add a pop of color to anything you'll wear them with!
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.
Earrings measure 7/8" in width, and 2" long. Ear wires are hand made from 20 gauge sterling silver.
