After seeing the wonderful result of a heat patina on copper, I couldn't think of a better design to use it on.
I hand-cut the leafs out of thin copper sheet and gave them a slight twist. They have a swirled finish that follows the direction veins of a leaf would. A heat patina gives them the extra red glow with a purplish tint at the edges. (The copper will continue to change color over time as that is natural for a heat patina finish, and every pair will have a different coloring due to the process.)
The earrings hang 2 3/4 inches long, with sterling silver ear wires.
They are lightweight and very comfortable.
