Heat treated copper earrings cascading on handmade silver wires. These triple square pieces of jewelry are very elegant, and quite long, the earwires add about a further 1/2 inch to the overall earring length.

The colors of these cascading copper earrings are the natural patinas produced by slow heating. I first cut the jewelry pieces by hand, then file and buff the edges with steel wool to ensure a smooth finish. As I heat the copper it changes from coppery pink to purple to blue to green and so on through the color spectrum.......I can stop at any time and create the starburst effect through torch-tip control. I then polish the jewelry 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 the earrings get a coat of car wax to protect the surfaces against skin oils and acids.
