Watercolor Enamel Sunset Earrings
These earrings use s couple of special techniques to give an effect similar to that of a watercolor painting. They are truly one of a kind as the flow is difficult to control and the "cracking" is random.
They have the look of an exotic sunset.
I begin 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.
They measure 1.14 inches, or 28.95mm in length and hang from my oxidized sterling silver ear wires.
Each piece I make 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 and a sweet surprise!
