I drilled holes in these oval copper earrings for texture. After filing and sandpapering they were scrubbed clean to accept enamel.
They were dipped in a product called White liquid enamel, dried and then torch fired. This particular batch of Thompson's white liquid enamel creates very interesting colors on the copper depending on the heat of the flame directed at it. So there are pale greens, purples, orange and earthy red colors on these earrings.
They are two sided. By changing the direction of the ear wire they can have a multicolored hue or a pale green or both as is in the photograph.
They were fun to make. I learned how to make them in a class with Ken Bova.
