52 Earrings in 2011 – No.11

Hammered Copper Fan Earrings_22

The Inspiration

A pair of Forged Earrings in the book “Metal Jewelry Made Easy” caught my eye and provided the inspiration for these earrings.

Originally 3 millimetre round copper wire, there was quite a bit of hammering involved to get the fanned ends.  The finished result is simple and unique – with the hammer marks showing – a true sign of handmade.
