Black and Blue Floral Enamel Earrings, Triplex Earrings
These earrings are hand-cut from copper sheet into a rounded shape. They are enameled in three sections: a floral pattern on light blue, and black and blue sections with aqua spots and with hand-painted gold accents. Ear wires are hand-made from 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" in width, and 1 1/2" long. Ear wires are hand made from 20 gauge sterling silver
These earrings are beautiful and have had lots of positive comments. This is the third pair of Roslyn’s I have bought. They are works of art,
