Etched Copper and Sterling Silver Earrings


 Etched Copper and Sterling Silver Earrings - I love texture, and yet another way to bring texture to jewelry is through etching. I etched a piece of copper and hand cut two 7/8" round discs. I then cut an additional hole to create just a little bit of negative space, and then melted a small round of silver into an orb and soldered it to the circles. I set a brass eyelet into the top of each disc to suspend the ear wire. These eyelets present a nice, clean finish to the otherwise bare holes in the copper. The copper was oxidized, buffed by hand, and tumbled for hours for an incredible strength, sheen, and yet still achieved a rustic patina. Copper, sterling silver, and a tiny touch of brass - truly mixed metals!

These are very lightweight earrings, comfortable to wear all day. They measure approximately 1 1/2" in length, and hang from my hand forged, sterling silver ear wires.

Jewelry is made using traditional metalworking techniques, including soldering, filing, sanding, texturing, polishing, and tumbling in my home studio. Jewelry comes wrapped in a cotton-lined gift box and ships quickly. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
