Niobium Rainbow color Handmade earrings
Very light and comfortable! A popular earring design!
I create the colors with electricity!
*Niobium jewelry. Beautiful peacock blues and greens!
Niobium NB is a beautiful refractory metal. The colors result from a coating oa oxide over the metal surface. The metal appears colored because the oxide coating is transparent, and causes interference in the light rays reflected from the metal. this is called optical interference. A similar effect is produced and can be seen in rainbows, soap bubbles, butterfly and bird wings, and oil on water. The illusion of color you see depends on the thickness of the oxide layer. Oxide is produced by anodizing. The metal is immersed into a water bath through which an electric current is passed.
Each piece of jewelry is created and colored individually with care. Niobium is hypo-allergenic, even for the most sensitive skin. it is also light weight and comfortable to wear
These earrings are made using the metal niobium. It is very light weight,
comfortable, and very hypoallergenic.
I design and create each earring one at a time. I begin with a sheet of niobium metal, gray in color . I hand cut out the shape I want, drill ear wire holes , shape, texture and polish the pieces, then I am ready to color and add the design!
colors are so beautiful! similar to peacock feathers!
