More new jewelry

As I sit here in between laundry loads, while waiting for the dinner to finish cooking in the oven, and before I have to go back to work for evening treatments,(whew!) I have a few minutes to show off and talk about the last 2 new pieces of jewelry that have been added to my ETsy shop this week.
The first is another pair of stamped and hammered disc earrings.


Copper stamped disc earrings-twisted knots
I take pure copper discs and hammer and texture them for this look. They also get domed, oxidized for a rich patina finish. I added twisted wire "knots" at the top. And pure copper ear wires. I made these ear wires slightly different than usual; I flattened the front part so it faces out, giving a thicker look in front of the ear than just the usual round ear wire.

Copper cuff


I think I mentioned this bracelet in a previous post. It's alot of work. It takes it's toll on my hands and wrists. It's basically a basket weave design, weaving wire in and out around the heavy core wire frame. Sterling silver wire coiled in front with an artisan lampwork glass bead as the focal.
Both of these items have been lacquered; as I am now applying a lacquer finish to my copper work to help protect and seal the patina.
The oven's timer is going off, the dryer has stopped- I have to run! Stop back soon!

Great pieces! I love the "knots" - how clever. I can't imagine what work the braclet was but it is beautiful.
