Small pierced hearts, domed copper discs and red enamel. Cherry red, oxblood red? Making these I was happy I bought a set of high quality Swiss made needle files instead of a new bag. I love my files.
The earrings are already listed in my shop.

Pierced and slightly domed copper discs with aqua blue enamel. Modern and lightweight. Finished with handcrafted sterling silver earwires.
I loved making these earrings. Cutting through copper, sifting enamel, watching the enamel flow, hammering the earwires, putting it all together. Being my studio immersed in creation.
Ready for more blue? Here comes the cloud necklace.
I tried to look at my cloud necklace like it was a completely new project. Not just colourwise. Chose sterling silver instead of copper for a chain. Picked glass beads in different colors from clear to light and medium aqua blue. And for contrast to shiny and glossy elements I grinded the enamel to a matte smooth finish. Looks and feels a little different. Almost not like enamel.
Both the earrings and the necklace are already listed in my Etsy shop.
