Copper Enamel and Sterling Silver Earrings in Sunflower Yellow

Regular price $45.00 $0.00
These handmade original earrings are glass enamel with sterling silver ear wires and charms.

I began this pair by cutting rectangles out of reclaimed roofing copper. I then created the enamel design through successive kiln firings of glass colors. I fired clear glass over oxidized copper to get the dark reds and browns, then dusted a bright sunflower yellow for vivid contrast. I used traditional silversmithing techniques to make the simple charms and ear wires from solid sterling silver.

The earrings are 1 1/2 (37mm) inches long.
