Enamel Leaf Earrings, Copper Glass Enamel
These striking statement earrings are cut from copper sheet into a leaf shape. They are enameled using leafy spine patterns in gorgeous shades of bright green, gold, aqua, and deep navy blue. The pattern on each earring varies slightly. Hand-made hoop wires are oxidized sterling silver. These have a fun mid-century modern flair!
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 2.5" long. Ear wires are hand made from 20 gauge sterling silver.
