Hammered Copper & Cloisonne Earrings
I love earrings that are essentially all-in-one pieces; the earwire and primary earring are a single unit. I had seen a blog on hammering and fusing Argentium silver into a heart and decided to use copper to form, hammer, and shape heart earrings. The cloisonné bead in copper and brass was a natural to give the earrings movement and polish, and the combination of warm copper and brass melds beautifully together. The copper has been sealed with Renaissance Wax to impede tarnish.
