Artist: Lora Donohue
I started with a guitar pick shaped copper blank. I embossed the tree of life on each blank. The pieces were placed in the doppeling block and hammered to the desired effect. This gives the piece a curved, more natural look. Then torched/flamed the pieces to create a rustic look. Then sanded and polished the pieces. Then I added a chemical patina (green/blue) to the pieces then sanded and polished to the desired effect. I punched holes in the bottoms and wire wrapped teardrop shaped turquoise with copper wire. Then holes were punched in the tops of the earrings and copper beads and copper lever back earring findings were added. There is no sealant on the pieces so they will continue to patina naturally.
Size: about 2 3/4" long x 1" wide, turquoise teardrops are 8mm.
