The lovely shape of these earrings is reminiscent of a lotus. As such, I use a light purple enamel. I also fuse a slice of light green spiral Murrini glass in the belly of the flower. Murrini glass is sliced cross sections of glass cane.
The backs are black enamel. Handmade sterling ear wires can be shiny silver or patina color.
Please note that due to the thin pieces of copper in these earrings, they are particularly delicate. There are 2 layers of enamel on each side, which is glass. Be very careful handling these earrings, especially around the thin points of contact in the metal.
