Heat oxidized copper earrings on handmade sterling silver wires. Long pink and blue triangular copper jewelry.

2 1/2in (63mm) long copper earrings on 1/2in (12mm) wires

The colors of these copper earrings are the natural patinas produced by slow heating. I first cut the 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 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 they get a coat of car wax to protect the surfaces against skin oils and acids.

Color perception is a tricky thing.......simply put, it is a response to available light.......in the dark there is no color, in bright sunlight it has optimal intensity and depth. These pieces are photographed under bright, white light.....they will not look the same under a 100 watt domestic light bulb, but they will if you take them outside on a sunny day. And remember, different monitors frequently display slightly different colors.
