The perfect everyday slate blue with cream speckled enamel earrings..... simple, lightweight with a little pop of color.

My process: Copper is cut from a thick sheet of metal. It is 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 at a very high temperature with a torch. This firing process is repeated many times. And voila .... vibrantly colored enamel disc earrings which are smooth to the touch and will make a great gift for yourself or a loved one.

The art of enameling has been around for..... a really long time. The first known enameled objects were made during the 13th century BC. The word "enamel" means ‘melting’, which comes from a prehistoric Germanic word "smalt". I LOVE this ancient art form for many reasons. Its color will remain just as vibrant in 100 years as it is the day it's created.

*Earrings hang approximately 1 inch (~2.5 cm) long.
*Actual enamel disc is 1/2 inch (~1.8 cm) in diameter.
*The ear wires are handmade out of argentium sterling silver wire (which is a trademarked sterling silver metal that is highly tarnish resistant)

The modeled earring is shown to judge size. You will receive the new pair of earrings pictured in the other photos.

All items come in a gift box... perfect for gift giving and storage.
