Coronavirus update: My Folksy shop is still open and I hope you find something you love! Please note that although I always aim to send orders as quickly as possibly, I’m trying to reduce my trips to the Post Office, so it may take a little longer than usual for your parcel to arrive. To make things easier for you, I can also gift wrap any presents, add a hand-written note and send them directly to the recipient – just leave me a note when you checkout.
::IMPORTANT:: Please see the last picture for the current batch of these unique earrings! I make these in small batches of 4-5 pairs at a time so this is the batch yours will be selected from.
These long copper earrings have been hand cut from copper sheet which I heavily textured with a variety of hammers. The finished copper shapes have then been flame painted, which is to gently brush the surface of the metal with the tip of a soldering torch flame, this produces a rainbow of colours as the metal cools.
The flame painted earrings are by nature, one of a kind, as the flame painting technique can be quite unpedictable, and you never know which multicoloured effect you are likely to get!
As the earrings are exposed to the air, the oxidised copper may start to change slightly. I've applied a coat of microcrystalline wax to help prevent this, but the part of the beauty of copper jewellery is the richness in colour developing with age!
The long copper earrings are hung from handmade solid copper earwires which have been tumbled for strength. The total length of these earrings is 7.5cm from the top of the ear wires.
The flame painted earrings will arrive ready to give as a gift or keep as a treat, wrapped in turquoise tissue with a black organza gift bag. If you would prefer a gift box please add one to your order from the gift box section in my shop.
I was just playing about, and came up with these strips of textured, colourful copper - I thought they looked pretty nice as they were! If you wanted I could make them into different shapes or sizes, contact me to discuss ideas :)
