Round post studs are handmade of enamel on copper, surgical steel earring posts with sterling silver earring backs. Each design is hand drawn through a scratch away technique on the enamel called sgraffito. They are then fired in a kiln and finished with a complementing glossy and matte finish for added texture. Although these studs are larger in size, don't let them fool you as they are very lightweight!
Approximately 1.75" in diameter.
These earrings are on view as a part of "Timeless Cure", an exhibition featuring artists that are using a timeless craft to create contemporary pieces that connect materials through centuries. Enamel is a technique dating back to the 18th century. It is powdered glass that is fired on sterling silver or copper in a kiln that cures to a solid glossy or matte finish on the surface of the metal.
