I’ve made purple flowers earrings to celebrate spring! They are mainly made using vitreous enamel and sterling silver. Enamelling is done over a fine silver foil fused on a copper blank. First, I made a copper blank and counter-enamelled it. The enamel coat on the pieces’ back and surface is the result of applying several layers of enamel grains. I have bended and shaped the silver wires, and fused them on the basecoat enamel on the blank. Then, I start filling the created cells using enamel coats. After applying each layer, I fire the pieces in my kiln at around 785 degrees celsius.
The diameter of earrings is about 2.4cm
