These sgrafitto enamel earrings are made by torch firing shades of blue and turquoise enamel onto a 1 1/2″ long copper shape, which looks a bit like a butterfly wing. I draw patterns into the enamel before torch firing. They are shown on a silver plated ear wire which is nickel and lead free. They are super light weight and comfortable to wear.
Cobalt Blue and Turquoise Copper Enameled Butterfly Wing Earrings
My name is Maria Cartwright and I’m the artist of 222 Creations. I create torch fired copper enameled jewelry and flame painted copper jewelry. My enamel jewelry is made by sifting enamel, which is powdered glass, onto a copper shape. I then torch fire the piece, which fuses the enamel onto the copper, turning it back into hard, shiny glass! I love using the technique called Sgrafitto, which is drawing designs and patterns into the powdered enamel before firing. My flame painted copper jewelry is made by painting patterns onto a copper shape with just a torch, and as the copper heats and cools it turns different colors! I have control of the pattern only – nature makes the colors, so each piece will always be one of a kind! All ear wires that I use are hypo allergenic.
