Summer Solstice Sunshine Earrings
Firepainted copper handsawn sunshine riveted to bronze with hand made sterling silver rivets dangle from long sterling silver earwires. So many little rivets. 😊 Shown with "Firepainted Summer Solstice Sunset Necklace".
These little "firepaintings" are paired by similarity in color and pattern but no two will ever be exactly alike.
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. Due to the wild nature of flame on copper each is a surprise as I "fire-paint" until I see something magical happening and no two will ever be duplicated. I then hand saw these designs with a jeweler’s saw.
Each piece is hand brushed individually with a top grade permanent lacquer so please only clean with water.
