Handmade Copper Leaf Earrings Form Folded From Copper Sheet
After the leaves were shaped and cut out of copper sheet, the surfaces were buffed and polished to reveal shiny copper while some heat darkened areas were left alone. The edges of the leaves have been filed to a smooth finish to reveal additional copper.
The backs of the earrings have not been altered and the colors are 100% the result of being heated with a torch.
Fold forming was invented by Charles Lewton-Brain in 1980 and is a before unknown method of working with metal. The British Museum Research Lab and the Rolex Awards for Enterprise have certified that Fold-forming is new and has not been done before in the history of metal working.
Metal is heated, hammered, folded and unfolded in a way that lets the natural properties of the metal help determine the final shape of the item.
The hand crafted copper ear wires feature a decorative copper bead accent. If you have metal sensitivities, sterling silver ear wires can be substituted upon request.
The leaves measure one inch / 2.5 cm in length and total length of the earrings is two inches / 5 cm.
