Enamel and Pyrite Earrings
These earrings were created with pure copper sheet and vitreous enamel (finely ground glass powder) then fired in a kiln at 1450 degrees to fuse the glass to the metal. After multiple firings they were ground and sanded smooth and polished. Pyrite gems were set in fine silver in the last stage.
They measure 1.5" in length (38mm)
Each piece is a reflection of my passion for metalworking as I form, solder, file, saw, fuse, hammer, and polish every piece of jewelry by hand in my Vermont studio.
All jewelry is shipped gift boxed and tied with ribbon all ready for giving.
