Handmade Soft Purple Enamel On Copper Dangles
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. The shape of the two earrings form a circle, it was cut into two in a wave motion.
An authentic pattern is painted within the enamel with a lighter shade , making the pattern even more interesting. The gorgeous enamel design is fringed with tiny, dark brown dots in semicirle motion on both pieces. It somehow reminds me of the illustrations from a folklore fairy tale book.
These soft purple dangle enamel earrings are about 3.5 cm long each and hang on copper clasps.
The length of each earring (with the clasp) is about 5 cm.
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.
