Firepainted Tapestry Earrings

3 lengths
These earrings are created using a torch on copper sheet. The copper is the canvas, while the torch and flame are the brush and paint creating glorious patterns and luminous hues. The edges have been sanded smooth and they have been hammered flat with hammer marks adding to the rustic look.

Each one is a surprise as I
"fire-paint" until I see something magical happening. No two will be the same so get 'em while they're hot! These particular earrings have sold so yours will be similar but not the same, unique and one of a kind! The color is protected with a top grade, permanent gloss lacquer.

In keeping with the rustic appeal, the sterling silver earwires have been oxidized and buffed to enhance the detail.

Materials: Copper sheet, sterling silver
