These enamel earrings are made from copper sheet that has been cut out, filed, sanded, and hammered. The copper shape is carefully cleaned and prepared in order to accept the enamel. I apply multiple layers of finely powdered glass enamel. It is applied to the back first and then the front of the piece. Each application must be fired in a 1450 degree kiln and then cleaned before the next layer can be added. This firing process is repeated at least 3 times for most designs.
