These copper spiral earrings feature techniques I use often - spirals, twisting, antiquing and hammering - all combined in the same pair.

These solid copper earrings each feature a large spiral of copper wire that has been twisted from 2 lengths of the same gauge. It has then been hammered slightly flat, just enough to open the twists and give some flat spots to catch the light. They were tumble polished for extra shine before being oxidised to a deep black.

They were then extensively tumble polished further to bring out the glossy warm rich tones of the antiqued copper, which has a gunmetal sheen on the surface.

The spirals hang from hand formed straight-hanging earwires, which have been hammered, tumble polished and the points filed for comfort. It was hard to capture how glossy they look in reality, the surface sheen and the deep rich colour, so the photographs were taken both with and without a diffuser to highlight the reflective nature of the surface finish and show the deep colour.

They hang around 44mm (1¾") overall from the top of the earwire and each spiral is approximately 18mm (0.7") in diameter.
