20mm [3/4 inch] ‘Hoops’  feature handmade natural copper ear wires, a lilac background and a lovely nebulous, feathery color burst of pink and bitter green.

 

Vitreous enamel is composed of finely ground glass powder that I sift over hand cut natural copper shapes. This is then carefully heated with a plumbers torch or small kiln to reach1500 degrees. At that temperature, the powdered glass liquifies, spreads and forms a beautiful glass surface.  For the cells or crackle techniques it spreads, pools and collects in cells, forming a distinct pattern. The pieces are then allowed to slow cool for several hours after which time the glass is permanently adhered to the metal underneath.
