Rectangular panel drop earrings featuring my own delicate leaf tendril design etched into copper sheet.  The earrings hang from hammered scrolled earwires, allowing the panels of the earrings to move freely.

I have recently rediscovered my love of copper etching, using a salt water technique and these rectangular earrings feature a delicate leaf tendril design that I drew myself digitally using vector drawing software and used this to create a design resist/mask for the etching process.  You can read more about the process used for these earrings in my blog.

The copper sheet used for the etch was quite thin, so the earrings will be very light to wear, but this also means that they require a little care as the panels will potentially bend with force applied.  The earrings have been antiqued to enhance the textures of the design and they hang from scrolled earwires to allow the earrings to move freely.

The earrings hang 54mm (2.1") overall from the top of the earwires and they are 16mm (0.6") in width.

Please note that this pair of earrings was made to test if the design technique would work for etching and I didn't take sufficient care in preparing my materials, so some etching fluid escaped under my mask and there is a small area of damage from this on the reverse of one earring at the top.  I thought that the earrings could still be enjoyed and I don't think that this will be seen in wear, but I've adjusted the price accordingly.  There is a photograph of the damaged area which can be seen in the additional photographs.
