Green Snakeskin Column Earrings, Enamel on Copper Earrings, Basse Taille Glass, Shaped Rectangle, Embossed Metal, Sterling Silver

A beautiful snakeskin pattern is embossed onto copper, and I hand-cut the metal into a rectangular shape and then shape them into a rounded rectangle. The enamel color is a luminous green with gold undertones, very versatile. The edges of each piece are sanded to expose the bare copper. Handmade sterling silver ear wires.

Basse Taille is an enameling technique in which the enamel is applied over metal that has been etched or embossed with a relief pattern.

The copper shapes are carefully cleaned and prepared in order to accept the enamel. Then, I apply multiple layers of enamel, which is finely powdered glass. The layers of enamel are fused to the copper on both sides in a 1500 degree kiln. This firing process is repeated several times. Finally, the edges are sanded to expose the copper. And voila .... a vibrantly colored pair of enamel earrings which will make a great gift for yourself or a loved one.

Measures 1 3/4" from the top of the ear wire. Circles measure about 7/16" in width.

Gemstones, crystals, and enamels (glass fused to metal) in your jewelry should be worn and handled with care. Like all stones and glass they vary in hardness and are at risk of being broken if hit or dropped on a hard surface. RedAvaDesigns is not responsible for stone breakage at the fault of the buyer.
