Brown fading to grey foldformed copper earrings


Subtle handmade foldformed earrings in heat treated and patinaed copper. Be sure to look at the close-up! This patina is grand on close viewing.

Simple foldformed wide rectangles approx. 1¾" long, 9/16" wide (46x14mm).

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 patina. The copper is sealed with lacquer to keep the colors bright and prevent wear and oxidization.

We have been working with foldforming techniques for a couple of years now. Foldforming involves folding and hammering sheets of ductile metals to create three-dimensional forms which arise naturally from the compression and spreading of the metal. In this style, which we call Underscore, a long t-fold is made in the vise, resulting in a crevice in the metal, a subtle but important design element.

If you prefer, the earwires can be replaced with sterling or surgical steel (note that the steel earwires are a different shape from the gold-filled ones shown).

[pendant shown is available separately]
