Description

Handmade Made of copper, vitreous enamel, sterling silver, plated silver Drop length: 2 5/8 inches Length: 3 1/8 inches Width: 1 1/2 inches Ear wire closure Description Gorgeous asymmetrical handmade modern enamel earrings...so sophisticated but yet laid-back and casual! Great with jeans and a T-shirt or just about anything as the colors and style lend themselves to so many outfits! In this particular pair of earrings I have used crackle and separation enamel to create an interesting web of lines and colors. Varied brown lines set against blue with just a hint of red creates a wonderful pattern! The reverse side of the earrings are lovely and organic, nicely finished in blue with black edges. This enameled back increases the stability and strength of the enamel in the earrings and is one of the many signs of a pair of earrings with professional quality workmanship! Gorgeous open marquis shaped components in a brushed satin finish texture reflect the light beautifully. These components have been treated with an anti-tarnish resistant finish. The silver marquis shaped dangles looks like sterling but don't tarnish! I have chosen to use these components along with my enameled half-moon shapes in an asymmetrical fashion for an edgy and fun design! Gift Wrap as shown is free! It is just me working in my studio, but my commitment is to make your order and ship it within 1 business day (Monday - Friday) of receiving the order. I ship from Florida, and time in transit will vary depending upon where in the US you are located. I ship USPS with tracking info, which gets to most places within 3 - 5 business days. If you would like them faster I can ship them via USPS Priority Mail. Please choose that option at check-out. Exchanges I want you to be happy with your purchase. Each piece is handmade by me in my home studio in Sarasota, Florida. I am not able to offer refunds on items made to order. If you need to exchange your purchase, please call or email me to discuss. Thank You! Interested in knowing more about the process of vitreous enamel? If so, read on….. And if not, just know these are a quality, beautifully finished handmade pair of one-of-a-kind earrings! Most of my enamel jewelry starts with a piece of copper that has been cut into the shape I envision my completed piece to be. Holes are drilled at this point, rough edges are sanded and filed off and any doming/dapping of the final form occurs at this point. The piece is then carefully and thoroughly cleaned by both scrubbing as well as pickling (immersing in an acidic cleaning solution kept warm in a crock pot). Without touching the surfaces to be enameled (enamel will not adhere to any areas that have any oil from your fingers or other residues), a fine mist of a clear gummy solution is sprayed on that will help the fine enamel particles adhere. Enamel particles (glass in a powdery form) are now sifted on, which comes in various colors, particle size, and formulas. Numerous firings will occur, creating one layer over the next, most often on the front as well as the reverse side of my designs. The many layers create depth and interest as well as giving stability to the piece. Each firing is done from 2 to as many as 7 minutes, in a kiln at approximately 1500 degrees. The firings are typically done 3 to 5 times on the front and 2 to 3 times on the reverse side. Removing the piece at precisely the right time is key to the process and a small window in my kiln allows me to peak in and see what is happening. Removing the piece from the kiln at precisely the right moment is imperative. When I design a pair of earrings I fire the two pieces at the same time. Truly no two pieces are ever the same, however they will be similar to each other by doing this and will create a lovely “coordinating”, not identical, set! I particularly enjoy the processes of crackle enamel and separation enamel, which are the interesting patterns and dimension that you see in many of my designs. These techniques create organic looking pieces that often resemble natural stones and gems….but in the shape and design I want them to be! Vitreous enamel, the process I use, is not to be confused with resin enamel or painted enamel or enamelware or many other uses of the word “enamel”…none of which are glass powders sifted on metal and fired with a torch or in a kiln numerous times at temperatures of approximately 1500 degrees until the powder melts and adheres to the metal creating a layer of gorgeous pure glass over the metal as I have described above…vitreous enamel. Be careful…not all enamels are created equal. Also to be considered is whether or not the vitreous enamel is fired on both sides of the piece you are considering. This is much more time consuming in the creation of the piece but increases its strength and stability, making for a quality, long lasting piece of jewelry. So now you know about the process of creating vitreous enamel jewelry! Truly no two pieces are ever identical! It is a fun and rewarding process.

I am the owner of DianaHDesigns/Artful Handmade Jewelry. I design and create every piece I sell myself, from my home studio in Florida. Jewelry designing to me is exciting, multi-faceted and ever-evolving! Being able to manipulate a flat piece of sheet metal into a dimensional, wearable piece of art has always been, and continues to be, very gratifying to me. Predominantly a metalsmith and enamelist, I do often incorporate leather, beading and wire work into my designs. I am inspired in particular by architecture and the galaxy and that is reflected in my work as they tend to be contemporary designs which are either architectural or “out of this world” in design. I tend to design and create a "collection" and then move on to whatever is inspiring me next. I like to keep my work new and exciting and there are only a handful of items I make repeatedly, everything else is one-of-a-kind. Designs from different collections can easily be worn together, however, and my customers can add on to their selections over the years as the look is cohesive. I enjoy being able to offer a wide variety of price points so regardless if you are looking for a great pair of earrings at $25 made with base metals or a great pair of earrings, a cuff or a pendant…or maybe all three….using precious metals to include 24k gold, I’ve got your covered! If you like my design aesthetic, there will be something in your price range. I do a limited amount of custom orders as well and would be happy to talk to you if that would be of interest! I happily work from my home studio in Lakewood Ranch, Florida and make every piece by hand, by myself.
