Handmade Copper Earrings
“Stamped Inverted Dome” Design 1
Size 1 1/2″ ht x 1″ wide
This is a handmade Forged “Stamped Inverted Domed” Copper Earrings. It amazes me with each new design that I do what can be created from a simple sheet of metal and some basic tools. The artist breathes life into a boring sheet of metal. It starts it’s incredible journey from sheet to become this pair of Copper Earrings. The story starts with the artist but continues on its own unique journey with you the customer. Do you keep it or Give it as a gift? This all becomes part of the continuing story. It is a very cool feeling to be part of that. Each piece is unique to itself the 1st time and the fifth time you make it. This is the beauty of handmade.
It all start with a 1 sheet of copper about 2″ x 6″. I use my disc cutter and punch out 2 1 1/4″ disc. I then pick which stamps designs I want to use and imprint the design using a hammer. Drill a hole for the ear wires. The earrings is now what is called dapped to form the domed shape. It is now ready for finishing process.
Why buy from me?
Quality and your Satisfaction is my goal!
Finishing this pair of Copper Earrings is just as important as creating the piece. This is where some artist get in a hurry. They have spent all their time creating and now they want to start on the next project. I have learn this it what sets my work apart from others there is no shortcuts. I do not get in a hurry at the end. I want to make sure the buyer has a smooth snag free keepsake jewelry. I use a buffing machine and I go through a 6 step of using different finishing brushes. Once I am satisfied with the finish I then let it tumble for 12 hours to help work hard.
The Ear wires are made from Niobium which is a hypoallergenic material that is great to use in jewelry designs. It is safe for anyone to wear, especially those with metal allergies. Niobium has greater strength than sterling silver.
I have spent much time perfecting my own technique for the finishing. I then seal it with a special lacquer coating used for outdoor sculpture work. If at any time the lacquer fails just simply contact me and send it back I will recoat for free.
I would like for you to receive compliments every time you wear this pair of Copper Earrings.
