Description

I love the way carnelian works with copper, don’t you?   I sculpted these earrings out of copper clay, which when fired at 1,800 degrees for three hours, becomes solid copper.  Amazing!  Then I added the carnelian with a handcrafted bezel.  The backplate of the stone is cut out, so that light shines through all that glorious red translucence.  Afterward, I applied and hand-buffed the warm brown patina that complements the stone so well. Finally, I handcrafted hypoallergenic niobium ear wires to prevent any allergic reactions to copper.  Long and swingy, these earrings are still very light and easy to wear.

Details:

  • 12 mm Carnelian Cabochons
  • Copper Sheet
  • Copper Wire
  • Niobium Wire
  • Copper Clay
  • Earring length: 2 1/2 inches (6.4 cm)

I love fashioning unique and individual pieces using ancient, handcrafted techniques: for example, cutting my own stones and creating my own chain and components from sheet and wire.  No two pieces from The Last Link are ever exactly the same!
