Hand-Etched and Enameled on Copper Earrings, Glass Enamel, Floral, Fern, Leaf Pattern, Pluma Earrings

Both pieces of these earrings are hand-cut from copper sheet. One half-circle is etched with a Japanese chrysanthemum pattern, and then oxidized to highlight the pattern. The other half-circle is slightly larger. It's hand-enameled on copper in teal green with a fern pattern in light blue-green. I've applied lacquer to the etched copper surface in order to protect the oxidization. Both halves are connect by copper rings.

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.

Earrings measure 1 " in width, and 1 5/8"long. Ear wires are hand made from 20 gauge sterling silver.

Pair these earrings with the coordinating Pluma Pendant: https://www.etsy.com/listing/550810431/hand-etched-and-enameled-on-copper?ref=shop_home_active_2
