White Double Tri Tribal Pattern Studs

65.00

These fun enamel studs feature a white hand-drawn triabal pattern that was made using the sgraffito technique, where the pattern was scratched through the white enamel 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 sterling silver ear posts were soldered on the backs and the backs were enameled in gray and then kiln-fired. Next a layer of liquid white enamel was painted on the front and then the pattern was scratched out exposing the copper beneath. Then they were kiln-fired at a toasty 1500°. They are finished with sterling silver eat nuts.

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.
