Japanese Landscape Earrings, Copper Glass Enamel
These earrings are cut from copper sheet in a leaf or marquise shape. They are hand-enameled on copper. Each earring has a unique, colorful image of a classical Japanese landscape painting in gorgeous shades of green, blue, brown, and gold. I've added a few hand-paonted touches as well. I've attached oxidized sterling silver ear wires.
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 1/2" in width, and 2 3/8" long. Ear wires and circles are hand made from 20 gauge sterling silver.
These earrings are the perfect gift for a dear friend who just happens to be a master gardener. I'm sure she'll be delighted. The craftsmanship is top tier. Thank you.
Aside from the colour which I love, the landscape design appealed to me. The Japanese landscape designs are exquisite. I love these earrings!
