ALL WRAPPED UP IN TURQUOISE EARRINGS

Artisan made, rustic and organic reticulated copper with crackle enamel, turquoise and niobium ear wires.

These are from my Forge and Flow collection.  I have fallen in LOVE with reticulation and I can combine it with enameling to add beautiful color and pattern.  I started these by reticulating copper sheet. This creates fabulously organic textures that I love! It takes multiple heating sessions to get "the right" look. The reticulation process is - start with copper sheet, lay a few extra pieces on top and then heat it until the top layer starts to melt and move. The copper will start creating bumps and ripples and looks soooo cool!  I never get enough texture on one heating so I repeat the process over and over. When I am happy with the texture I tumble them for at least 12 hours to remove all the sharp edges.  Next I wrapped them with copper wire and did a turquoise crackle enamel on the top. Once I was happy with the amount of movement in the glass I cleaned them one last time and ran them in the tumbler for a bit more to soften all the edges, harden the metal and made them quite sensual to feel. The enamel also gets a matte texture from the tumbling. The final steps are oxidize and then sand them to brighten up the high spots.

These reticulated drops are hanging below turquoise disks framed by turquoise rondelles and copper twisted spacers. The earrings hang down for a total length of a bit less than 3 1/4" (8.3 cm). They are shown hanging on niobium, hook style ear wires.
