Colorful sky blue earrings are made from vitreous enamel on copper, adorned with stitched embroidery thread and paired with sterling silver earwires. Blue enamel has been etched back leaving the surface a matte finish.
Approximately 2.5" in length and 1" 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 or liquid glass that is fired on sterling silver, steel or copper in a kiln that cures to a solid glossy or matte finish on the surface of the metal.
