Enamel Leaf Earrings, Evergreen Tree Earrings, Vintage Copper
These one-of-a-kind branch earrings are made from slightly domed copper, and enameled in a gorgeous shade of green. They hang from beautiful vintage copper connectors that I have lightly oxidized. Very lightweight!
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 5/8" in width, and 2 1/2" long. Ear wires are lead and nickel-free antique copper. You may also select handmade 14k rose-gold filled ear wires at checkout.
