The "firepainted" and bright copper are protected with a top grade, permanent gloss lacquer and the sterling silver shepherd hook ear wires have been darkened with a patina therefore no care is needed. Simply clean with water. Please don't use jewelry cleaner or a polishing cloth. Earrings measure approx. 1 3/4" in length from the top of the ear wire to the bottom of the stone.
Shown with Three Tier with Labradorite Pendant.
What is "Painting with Fire"?
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.
