Softly Hammered Concave Circle Earrings
Firepainted copper 5/8” diameter concave circle earrings with bright copper brushed rim really pop with soft pastel color and make a simple summer statement. I’ve lightly dimpled to add texture to these earrings which is difficult to capture in the photos.
These little "firepaintings" are paired by similarity in color and pattern but no two will ever be exactly alike.

I use a torch on copper sheet in an 11 step hot and cold process to obtain vibrant colors. No chemicals or dyes are used. The copper is the canvas, while the torch and flame are the brush and paint, creating the glorious patterns and luminous hues on each hand cut shape. Each one is a surprise as I "fire-paint" until I see something magical happening. I hand cut each earring using a die cut and hand sand the rims. Then lightly add a dimple affect with a hammer.
