Double U Earrings, Copper Glass Enamel
Two "U" shapes and a circle form a fun, Mid-Century Modern-inspired pair of earrings, reminiscent of 1960s and 1970s design. They are enameled in complementary and alternating shades of chartreuse green and deep purple, and joined with antique copper rings. Antique copper lever back ear wires are secure, as well as lead and nickel-free. You may also select silver rings and ear wires at checkout.
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 1/4" long from the top of the ear wire.
