A super lightweight pair of statement earrings for the free and easy spirit.
This technique renders a design that me of the lichen growing on rocks and trees on my woodland walk.
These have been counter-enameled on the back to reduce stress. The enamel (fine glass powder) is then applied in 4 layers, fired in the kiln between each layer. The excess glass is ground off and all edges sanded smooth and polished before being attached to the Niobium hypoallergenic ear wires.
Niobium is a chemical element (symbol Nb). It is a soft, grey metal that is naturally found in the minerals pyrochlore and columbite. Niobium is naturally hypoallergenic and commonly used in a number of medical devices including prosthetics and implants, such as pacemakers. Often used in jewelry making because of its hypoallergenic properties, this metal is a safe choice for anyone with metal allergies.
There is no way to exactly duplicate these so each pair is different, even if I use the same colors and formula!
