YOJ11-01 Copper and Sterling Blooms by Stacie Williams

I revisited an old design with a different metal.  These rustic blooms are made of copper with a sterling center- on sterling ear wires.  I wanted to use copper for two reasons- I love the warmth (and it won’t be touching skin) and I wanted to play with a patina.  The patina was to be blue and I still don’t really see blue.  And since they are sealed- I’m not getting the glow from the copper that I love so much.  I want to play with the process some more.

    I really like the organic feeling of those. I can see a little bit of blue in the patina.

    I’m with Nancy, loving the organic flavor of these,

  4. Thank you ladies. ;-) Sue- on this pair the center isn’t part of the ear wires. I made the blooms then soldered on a wire to the back for the ear wires.

  5. Really nice and earthy looking, I like this style a lot.
