This Modern inspired look is made from copper pennies that have been rolled in a rolling, pressed multiple times to create this shape and then hammered on a dapping block to create an organic form. The ear wires are sterling silver.
About the Materials: These are created with Vitreous Enamels (Glass made for metals) created by the Cincinnati Company Thompsons Enamels. I manipulate my vintage copper pennies and then torch or kiln fire the enamels on the pieces. Many of the pieces in this collection have a polished back revealing Lincoln and the date of the penny. My pieces are small batch or one a kind works of wearable art.
These are created to be worn and look better with movement. The ear wire is shaped specifically to balance in your ear while performing all activities. Enamels and metal can withstand soakings and changing environments. I wear mine while exercising vigorously, performing motherly tasks, throwing on the potter's wheel, enameling and hammering metals, teaching art in elementary school, hiking in random environments and occasionally when washing my hair.\
Beautiful creations are meant to be worn!
