Celebrating dappled sunlight, these stunning one-of-a-kind, tiered earrings feature five warm, nuanced copper enamel pieces held together with oxidized sterling silver elements and swinging easily from an oxidized silver hook.
The enameled copper charms on these were wholly torch-fired. In the enameling process, powdered glass is sprinkled onto the copper and then both are heated up until they fuse together. I always fire black on the back first which leaves the copper bare at first, allowing it to be changed and pick up patterns from the heat. The unpredictability leaves each piece as unique as a fingerprint. The patterns are sealed with a clear glass enamel layer and the pieces are gently fired again to develop the color to these rusty, rich warm shades.
These earrings are one-of-a-kind. While I may revisit them in the future, currently only this pair exists!
