Handmade Enamel On Copper Dangles With Snail Design
This true authentic piece of jewelry is made with the traditional enamelling technique. What I love about it is that is looks liquid on the copper base even though it is not. A snail pattern piece of copper is coiled up on the surface of the earrings, the compartments filled with gorgeously shiny enamel.
An authentic pattern is painted within the enamel with a lighter shade , making the pattern even more interesting. It somehow reminds me of the illustrations from a folklore fairy tale book.
These enamel earrings are about 2.5 cm long each and hang on copper clasps.
The length of each earring (with the clasp) is about 4 cm.
If you prefer having a sterling silver or silicone hook you can easily purchase it in our webshop. I will change the hooks for you and send your new pair of earrings with your preferred hooks.
How to care for this pair of earrings
This beauty is made of enamel on copper with copper ear hooks. Over a couple of years, the beautiful reddish copper can turn dark, kind of black and it can also turnish. To clean it, apply some ketchup (yes, you read it correctly, ketchup!) on a cloth and wipe the jewel with it.
It should not need any maintanance if you follow the golden rules of jewelry-keeping below.
- this jewel is fragile
- spray your perfume 20 minutes before putting on your accessories
- never take a bath/shower with your jewelry on because moist is harmful even to noble metals
- when you take it off, keep your jewelry in the darkest, driest area of your home to maintain its original beauty for a long time
