Thames sunset - patinaed triangular foldformed copper
Subtle handmade foldformed earrings in heat treated and patinaed copper. Be sure to look at the close-up! A remarkable patina came out on these earrings, involving the applied silver-grey and blue-green (verdigris) patinas and the colors that came out from heating the copper in the foldforming process.
Simple foldformed triangles approx. 1-7/8" long, 1/2" wide. There are also matching pendants available.
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 heating the copper to a glow, then after it has cooled, heating again while brushing on silver and blue-green patinas. The copper is sealed with lacquer to keep the colors bright and prevent wear and oxidization.
