Beautiful Artistic handmade enameled copper Red with Black Rose design dangle earrings with sterling silver & copper ear wires.
I design & create all of my jewelry. This enameled jewelry is a fun process since the result is a high gloss shine on smooth enamel in rich colors, like a perfect gel mani. Shiny, glossy, pretty jewelry always makes me smile.
*Background is an orange-ish red with a black Rose pattern layered on top
*2” total drop
*Flattering elongated teardrop shape
*Enameled on the back with transparent enamel
*Handmade in Houston, TX
*I only use the highest quality copper and sterling silver/copper ear wires with lead free enamel
How are these earrings made?
First, fine jewelry grade sheet copper is cut with a die into consistent, perfect shapes. Then I drill a hole and clean up the edges with a file and sandpaper. Afterwards I stamp my Makers Mark on the back, and hammer each earring into a curved wooden block called a dapping block to get a slight curve to each earring. Then I wash the metal really good with pumice, removing any oils or fingerprints as the enamel won't stick to oil. Then I sift on the first coat of enamel, bake in my kiln at 1500F degrees for a few minutes, let cool, and repeat the process of enameling, firing & cooling for the back and additional layers of color or designs on top. Once complete, I finish the earrings by cleaning up the edges with a file to bring out the beautiful copper, file the inside of the top hole, and attach an ear wire.
The earrings you see are the earrings you will get. Ready to ship. Your earrings will arrive on an earring card with my shop logo & a small card describing the handmade nature of this jewelry, neatly packed in a kraft box, tied with a red double-faced satin bow, ready for gifting.
