Double Flower Cup Earrings

Artist Statement: Each "cup" is hand formed out of copper. Then numerous layers are of powdered glass are fired to form the color of the cup. Layers of enamel in white with traces of baby blue and chartreuse. Two cups are joined together with a fine silver stud. All hanging from a handcrafted silver hoop.

Cup width: 3/4"
inner cup: under 1/2"
Total Length: 1-3/4"

Enameling is fusing glass to metal, in this case copper. Each piece is fired multiple times including the back to 1500 degrees.
