A beautiful snakeskin pattern is embossed onto pure copper. I hand-cut the metal into circle shapes and dome them. The enamel color is a luminous orange with gold undertones, with green tones at the bottom of the circles. The edges of each circle are sanded to expose the bare copper. Handmade sterling silver ear wires. Lead and nickel-free antique copper ear wires are also an option. These lightweight, minimal earrings are perfect for everyday wear.

Basse Taille is an enameling technique in which the enamel is applied over metal that has been etched or embossed with a relief pattern.

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.

Measures 1 3/8" from the top of the ear wire. Circles measure about 3/4" in diameter.
