Turquoise Blue Dot and Dash Copper Enamel Earrings
I've hand-embossed a beautiful dot pattern onto copper, and then hand-cut the metal into a rectangular shape. The enamel color is a rich turquoise blue. The edges of each piece are sanded to expose the bare copper. Your choice of lead and nickle-free antique copper ear wires or handmade 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.
Measures 1 7/8" from the top of the ear wire, and 1/2" in width.
