Tumble Weed Enamel Earrings

129.00

These earrings are part of a new series called Rustic Poetry. They are in the Desert Sun color family. This pair reminds me of the tumble weeds I saw as I traveled across the southwest in my tiny Honda Civic when I was in my early 20’s.

Hand cut copper is drilled, filed and meticulously cleaned before it is coated with vitreous enamel on both sides. The back side of these are black. The fronts were sprayed with liquid enamel. Once it dried, the design was scratched down to the metal and then fired. The reddish brown lines are the exposed copper. Watercolor enamel was then applied and allowed to dry before firing again. This process can take several firing to get the colors just right.

Handmade sterling silver ear wires finish off these one-of-a-kind beauties. They were oxidized to a dark gray and tumbled for shine and strength.

Dimensions:

1 3/4" long x 7/8" wide
