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.
