Seashell Earrings by Daphne Liatou  - featured on Jewelry Making Journal

Wanting to create a jewel with a summer theme, I decided to make shell earrings. I followed these steps:

  1. On a copper sheet I designed the shape of the shell with the help of a real shell and then cut it with the scissors.
  2. Using a thick needle and hammer, I made the hole in which I would pass the jump ring and the hook.
  3. With steel wool I rubbed the copper around so that it is not sharp.
  4. With the tools of copper I created the dents to look like a shell.
  5. I oxidized copper to the flame of the candle and finally painted it with acrylic paints.

I hope you like it!
