SAPPHIRES AND PUDDLES EARRINGS

Artisan made organic fold formed enamel copper earrings with sterling melted on the copper, sapphires and sterling silver.  Colors are copper, rose, purple, green and pink.

These are from my Forge and Flow collection. I had more fold forming fun when I made these.  I get to do hammering, but to get this texture I have to be aware of how the copper moves as I hammer each side and down the middle.  And, with the hammering one has to stop, reheat to soften the copper, then hammer some more, rinse and repeat ... LOL!  But, in the end, I got some awesome texture!  In fact I loved the texture so much I didn't want to hide it with enamel so I just filed some sterling to make dust, sprinkled it on and melted it.  It's fun to watch since you see dust, then black dust and black copper and then, POOF, you see the shimmer of liquid silver at just the right heat.  After melting the silver I clean everything again and then add just a bit of torch heat to bring out some fabulous colors.  Sometimes I'm lucky the first time, sometimes I'm not.  This time I got it the first time on one, but had to reclean and reheat 3x for the other.  And, finally, a bit of pickle judiciously applied to clean the oxidation off the silver, but leave the color on the copper.   I coated it with renaissance wax so that the copper colors will be preserved for a while. They will eventually change with time and oxidation.

After all that work with the copper I made a figure eight connector on the top in sterling, dangled a sterling chain and added 2.6 carats of sapphires in pink, green and purple.  All faceted and sparkly!  Sapphires are the June birthstone.

They are shown hanging on sterling silver hook style ear wires.  They measure 2 3/4" (7 cm) from the top of the ear wire to the bottom of copper dangle.
