Copper Earrings Big SwirlThis is a handmade high polish “Big Swirl” Copper Earrings. It amazes me with each new design that I do what can be created from a simple piece of wire and some basic tools. The artist breathes life into a boring strip of wire. It starts it’s incredible journey from wire  to become this Copper Earrings. The story starts with the artist but continues on its own unique journey with you the customer. 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. That is because there is no machine making it and no matter how hard I try it’s impossible to create 2 exactly alike. That is the beauty of handmade.

 

The Process:  

It starts with 4″ of 16 gage  copper wire. I curl one end of the wire and go to the opposite end and start a smaller curl going the opposite direction.  Once I have the wire close to where I want it, I flip it upside down and use a planishing hammer to flatten the wire on an anvil.  I have to be careful that I keep the wire where it maintain the round design. Tweak here and there to get it where I like it. 

 

Why buy from me?

 

       Quality and your Satisfaction is my goal!

 

Finishing this 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 are no shortcuts. I just do not get in a hurry at the end. 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 harden and burnish the shine further.

 

The brightness of my copper may not come across as clear in the photos as they are in your hand. 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.

 

Ear wire is made from Niobium which is a hypoallergenic material that is great to use in jewelry designs because it is safe for anyone to wear, especially those with metal allergies. Niobium has greater strength than sterling silver.
