Antique Finish Fold-Formed Copper Leaf Earrings
Antique finish Elegant Fold Formed Copper leaf Earrings.
Each copper leaf was crafted individually and given an antique patina and and highly polished finish. Earrings are 7.6 cm (approx 3 inches) long from top of the ear-wire. Ear Wires are also made by me and are Sterling Silver. This is slightly heavier gauge sheet copper than the one I use for my shorter fold formed leaf earrings.
I am really enjoying Fold Forming and using the technique to create a whole lot of designs including wearable art like these earrings.
The picture on the right is of a batch of leaves folded, forged and hammered, ready for opening. Once opened each leaf is cleaned using a variety of cleaning and sanding tools, polished and then its ready to be part of a decorative flower display or art jewellery.
Bespoke orders most welcome for this style of jewellery for Christmas gifts, Weddings favours and other special occasions.
