Getting to know.....Copper

I got a chance to finish my acid etching experiments. I had a fourth pair that I added some turquoise cabs to.  But, the silver solder got into some of my etching lines and they look like a hot mess up close.  Not very noticeable in person, so I got myself a new pair of earrings!  :)

I've worked with copper a bit in the past, and I am enjoying working with it more.  It oxidizes so beautifully, and I love the rich warm glow that copper gives...

These are all listed in my Etsy shop.


  1. these look great keep up the good work. I like them.

  2. I am scared to work with Copper..I will start incorporating it one day, possibly only into earrings like you are...or on rings maybe. I hate where this silver business is headed. I don't want to give it up. Great work on the etching by the way! Another thing I have to try :)

  3. I love your etching. They are gorgeous!
