These earrings are based on a tube bail design I did, but flipped upside down and miniaturized for earrings. I added little hammered loops at the bases for dangling beads.

First I transferred a gorgeous digital damask design from Aesthetic Addictions to my metal using a toner-based resist system, and after etching I added all the little holes and tube rivets and formed them into these little handbag shapes. The flowers in the pattern made me think of a gypsy caravan, so I went wild with color! I hung glowing amber and peridot from the bottom, and decorated the earwires with little iolite coins.

The main copper portion is 7/8" wide by 3/4" tall. The whole earring measures 2 and 5/8" from the curve of the earwire to the tip of the gold pearl drop. Lighter weight than they appear, as the copper sheet is fairly fine gauge (26) and has been etched aggressively, removing a portion of the metal.

All the copper in these earrings (including the earwires) has been sealed in a high-grade lacquer to preserve patina and shine and guard against sensitivity.
