Shield & Vines Enamel Hoop Earrings, 30% OFF!
These earrings are hand-cut from copper sheet into a shield shape. They are enameled in green with a delicate blue and purple vine pattern. They are hand-set in soldered sterling silver wire baskets with sterling prongs and sterling hoop ear wires. Perfect to add a pop of color to anything you'll wear them with!
The shield is a symbol of strength and protection. Vines also symbolize strength, determination, and endurance. This pair combines the power of the shield, with the feminine, organic vine motif.
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 1 7/8" long. Ear wires are hand made from 20 gauge sterling silver. Were $140, now $85.00 (additional 10% off).
