Happy Monday Everyone!
I already wish it was Friday so I can experiment more. But why rush the days?
I'm working on a series of "Dipped Dangles." They are so much fun to make AND wear.
Made with 18 gauge copper.
The price of silver is outrageous and forcing me to shift to other materials. However, the ear wires are still silver. Don't want our ears turning green.
I had torched enamel mocha on the balled ends. The picture couldn't capture the color but trust me it is there. I think the reason it is so dark is because I burnt the color off. The whole piece was then patinated and polished with a brass brush. This is the prototype. I would like to use heavier copper but I'm on the fence about that. I don't like to wear heavy earrings. Does anyone?
So...this weekend I'll be making more Dipped Dangles with lots of different colors.
I also experimented with enameling different colors on balled ends of wire. Which has always been a challenge for me. The colors from the results were amazing! I'll post that later this week. I want to share my findings with all of you. So stay tuned.
Have a fantastic Monday!
