These green trapezoidal earrings feature a handdrawn abstract design that reminds me of a poppy pod. As these move in the light you'll see little golden accents.

 

Finished with sterling silver posts.

My Process: 

These lightweight vitreous enamel earrings are made by hand every step of the way. The shape is drawn and cut by hand, then forged to have a slight dome for strength and design aestetic. After cleaning the metal to remove any dirt and oils, a thin layer of powdered glass is fused to each side of the copper in a 1450°F kiln. The designs are hand drawn in my sketchbook, digitized, and then printed on a special laser decal paper that is fired on to create a deep brown (sometimes black) image. They were fired yet again to add highlights, shading, and sometimes metalic lusters. Each enameled piece in my shop is fired in my 1450°F kiln at least 4 times - sometimes up to 10 times to create layered designs!
