Artist: Lora Donohue
Fresh off the bench....These lovely long earrings are mismatched for a more dramatic effect. I started with guitar pick shaped copper blanks. They are hand embossed...1 with the Tree of Life the other is a bird landing on the tree. The pieces were then torched (annealed), cooled, put on the dapping block to produce a rounded, concave effect. Then the pieces were patinaed with a green patina. The pieces are sealed with a metal sealant. The dragonflies are copper, patinaed with green and are not sealed. The beads are metal patina beads handmade in Mykonos, Greece. The wire wrapped was done with copper wire. The earring findings are lever backs.
Size: 3 inches long and 1 inch wide
