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.
Torch Fired Enameled Penny Jewelry
How fun are these little guys! I broke down and invested in a torch and enamels after my Dad gave me a Dapping & Forming set for shaping metals. While investigating enamel torch firing, I discovered I could enamel older pennies due to the existing copper in pre-1981 pennies. Brings new meaning to "upcycling".
Metals have always been a favorite medium of mine and transparent layers of glossy color only enhance the beauty of the metal.
My goal is to create handmade art that is affordable, beautiful and USABLE!
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!
