Everyday earring design featuring a stamped solder effect onto a copper metal base. Fairly lightweight and oh so easy to wear.
I love the soft colors of the Aquamarine gemstones dangling from the bottom which creates nice movement.
Stamped solder effects can be created using either a micro torch or soldering iron. The tip to creating a nice deep stamp is to move very quickly once the solder is melted and to use a stamp that has a high relief design. The stamped solder effect turns out slightly different each time.
