52 Earrings in 2011 – No.3

Hammered Copper Earrings_16

The Inspiration

I love hammering copper!

The joy I get from each blow (it’s a type of therapy for me…), knowing that each time I hit the metal I am creating a unique mark – one that cannot ever be repeated.

These earrings have been bound with salvaged earth wire.  Bound (chaotically and with no rhyme or reason), but it’s holding it all together – a lot like me at times… just holding it all together…

The dark patina is like age.  I’m at a point where I’m finally appreciating my age (wrinkles and all), but with (coppery) glints of youth shining through…
