Copper Leaf Earrings

I spend another evening learning all sorts of great jewelry making techniques from Melissa Muir.  On this occasion, we both made fabulous (if I say so myself) copper earrings.  We cut, folded, forged, soldered, pickled, and oxidized the metal and ended with these:

If you are anywhere near Melissa’s studio and want to learn more than you knew that you needed to know, I highly recommend taking one of her classes.  If you don’t want to learn to make the jewelry, but would still like to wear it, check out some of her work.

In addition to learning jewelry making, I create fabulous (if I say so myself) glass lamwork beads. Check them out at Etsy or my Spawn of Flame website.

    Rose,

    I think yours turned out fantastic. I wanted to swap them when we pulled them out of the pickle and sneak yours for mine. hehehehe

    No, I would never do that. These turned out wonderfully and it was a riot to have you over at my place again. I hope we can do it again soon.

    Thanks for the compliments on my work. I appreciate it. 😉

    Melissa,

    I don’t know – I liked yours just fine too!

    And to quote a very famous movie line “I’ll be back”.

    Rose.
