Rustic Copper Pipe Earrings

Antique Finish Rustic Copper EarringsUpcycled antique finish copper earrings made from old copper pipe.

I hammered the tube using the same technique I use on the Fantasy Copper Cuffs. The sculptured tube was sawn into smaller pieces, then finished as earrings with copper wire components and sterling silver ear-wires.

Size: The Upcycled Rustic Copper Earrings are 5.2 cm long from top of the earwires.

Waste Not Want Not series

Metal salvaged from an old copper pipe. I bought the raw material from a fellow metalsmith as he had more of these tubes than he needed for his work. I believe he gets them from a salvage yard.

When I got the pipes they needed a lot of cleaning as they had a coating of some kind of greasy substance. Washing up liquid is not just for the kitchen you know! I washed the pipe several times and then annealed it which got rid of all the muck it had.

Keep an eye on the earrings section of my online shop where more earrings in this style will be added as I make them.
