Earrings from the bench. Titled "Pond Life". I discovered or invented (not sure) a process that "lifts" copper up and creates this beautiful rust patina. I started with Bronze metal, hand embossed the spiral into the metal, then torched the metal and put it into the dapping block. Then I used a patina that brought out the rusty copper, then I sanded and polished the pieces. The pieces ended up looking like shells! Each earring is unique and individual since they are handmade. I wire wrapped light greenish Fresh Water Pearls to the metal with copper wire. The dragonflies have been patina with a green patina, then sanded. The wings were brought out a little to produce the effect of flight. The earring findings are antiqued bronze lever backs.
Size: 3/4 inches long and 1 inch wide.
