Foldformed red copper earrings - rectangular pinchforms
This image © dmbstudio 2012
Handmade foldformed earrings in flame-colored copper and polished brass dangles in opposite-facing parallelograms for a dancing effect. approx. 1¼" long, 7/8" wide. Earwires are 14/20 gold-filled: a heavy layer of gold wrapped around a base metal core. The patina on the copper comes about from the heat of the last anneal before the earring is unfolded to its final form, and is highly variable. The copper is sealed with lacquer to keep the colors bright and prevent wear and oxidization.
