White Diagonal Feather Earrings

75.00

These modern feather enamel earrings feature a white diagonal lined pattern that was made using the sgraffito technique, where the white lined pattern was scratched through to expose the copper below for a rough and weathered effect.

First the design for these earrings was sketched out and then the shapes were hand-cut out of copper sheet metal. Next a layer of liquid white enamel was painted on the surface, then the lined pattern was scratched out exposing the copper beneath. Then they are kiln-fired at a toasty 1500°. The same proces is repeated on the back side for uniformity. They are completed with sterling silver ear wires.

Please note, the exposed copper has been sealed with wax, however it will tarnish over time, which can add a nice effect, but you can always clean it with a copper cleaner (like bar keeper's friend) and soap and water if you prefer a shiny finish. 

LENGTH - 2-3/4"
