These lightweight rectangle beauties will beg you to create an outfit around them but will also fit with so many everyday and special occasion outfits.
I've handmade these earrings by cutting the rectangle shape out of copper sheet metal and then applying many layers of enamel (powdered glass) and torch firing each piece many times to fuse the glass to the metal. The lichen green color enamel was used as the base color and then I applied a scroll design in a vibrant flame orange color.
The art of enameling has been around for..... a really long time. The first known enameled objects were made during the 13th century BC. The word "enamel" means ‘melting’, which comes from a prehistoric Germanic word "smalt". I LOVE this ancient art form for many reasons. Its color will remain just as vibrant in 100 years as it is the day it's created.
*Earrings hang 1.5 inches (~3.8 cm) long.
*Actual enamel rectangle is 3/4 inch (~1.9 cm) high and 1/2 inch (~1.3 cm) wide.
*The ear wires are handmade out of argentium sterling silver wire (which is a trademarked sterling silver metal that is highly tarnish resistant)
The modeled earring is shown to judge size. You will receive the new pair of earrings pictured in the other photos.
