Copper Poppy Earrings – Medium – earthy earrings for the one who loves handcrafted design.
I love the contrast between copper and sterling silver, especially when the copper has a dark patina. These earrings were inspired by poppy flowers, each made by hand. Each earring was cut out from flat sheet metal and given a formed, hammered texture. I made three small silver balls for each earring and soldered them to the centers.
Next I did some light sanding before placing the earrings in a patina bath. This step turned the copper black. Then, I brought out some highlights on the copper and silver using steel wool.
I made the ear wires in a french-style, rounding the ends to protect your ears.
Copper is known for its red, warm color. It’s also a traditional 7th anniversary wedding gift.
