In addition to using copper tubing for drop earrings, I find that I return to using lace to get patterns on earring pieces. These are part of that process. First, the blue is enameled onto the prepared copper. Then lace is overlaid and white powder was sifted on for a second and possibly third torching. I love the blue although I have been told I used blue too much… I guess my favorites make it to production time more than the warmer colors.
I have branched out and started twisting other types of wire for enameling with my torch. This is annealed steel wire and works great, plus I love the rustic look for the earrings. The immersion method is used. Trees on the lower left are torched into the best green color I have (for trees). They will be spruced up with beads and put on ear wires.
