Moroccan Glow Earrings, Enamel on Copper
These earrings are cut from copper sheet into an Arabic design. They are hand-enameled with a subtle abstract floral pattern in gorgeous shades of blue and purple, on a gold ground that has a beautiful glow. Hand-made ear wires are oxidized sterling silver.
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 1/4" in width, and 2 1/16" long. Ear wires are hand made from 20 gauge sterling silver wire, or lever-back antique copper wires that are lead and nickel-free.
