Antique Finish Fold-Formed Copper Earrings
Rustic Fold Formed Copper Earrings.
Fold forming involves folding sheet copper and then hammering it to create folds and creases. Each copper component was cut from a sheet of fold formed copper. I have also shaped and textured the fold formed copper rectangles to give depth and dimension to the earrings.
I have given the components an antique patina. Then I used a wire brush and sand paper to buff the piece which has brought out out the highlights in the texture.
The Rustic Copper Earrings are 6.8 cm long from top of the ear-wire. Ear Wires are Sterling Silver. The Copper rectangles are 3.8 X 2.4 cm.
I am really enjoying Fold Forming and using the technique to create a whole lot of designs including wearable art like these earrings.
Bespoke orders most welcome for this style of jewellery for weddings and special occasions.
