(Patchogue, New York USA)
This is another pair of earrings I made utilizing a leftover section of copper sheet.
The sheet was folded, cut into this heart shape and formed into what I thought looked like a leaf. A little pounding with a chasing hammer helped to stiffen and work harden them as well as the constant work on the leaf details.
I used a hole puncher and 20 gauge wire for the tendril/earwire which is all one piece. Finally I oxidized, brushed with fine steel wool and a brass brush, polished with a jewelry cloth, and sealed the earrings.
This was actually a lot of fun. I’m loving it!
Copper heart leaf earrings
How I love these, Zoraida! Your leaves always look so real – even to the detail on the back. The spiraling tendrils are a wonderful touch.
I love Autumn and leafy things – I’d just put these on and wander around among the trees! 🙂
Thank you so much for sharing these with us! They have a lovely tree-Zen feel.
Thanks so much Rena for your lovely comments.
I really do love working with copper sheet (and copper wire) and do have a tendancy to wander among the trees. So much inspiration there.
