Oval 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 2.25" in length and 7/8" in width.
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.
