Medium size oxidized copper earrings. As do all green earrings, these best complement redheads and medium brunettes.... and, of course, black hair goes with any color.....heat oxidized copper jewelry on handmade silver wires.
The colors in these copper earrings are the natural patinas produced by slow heating. I first cut the pieces by hand, then file and buff the edges with steel wool to ensure a smooth finish. Then, as the pieces are gently heated with a propane torch , the colors appear. I add the starbursts through torch-tip manipulation. I then polish the backs to raw copper and give both sides 3 coats of clear lacquer to prevent further oxidation and to give them a durable gloss finish. Finally they get a coat of car wax to protect the surfaces against skin oils and acids.
1 3/8in (34mm) long, on 1/2in (12mm) wires

If you place the seven visible colors of the rainbow in order in a circle, the ones opposite each other are known as complementaries and when they are put side-by-side they vibrate off each other......think of orange leaves physically and visually quivering against the background of a blue autumn sky..........all of this is simply a long-winded way of suggesting that these little earrings are a natural for redheads!
In case you've forgotten...........
