Enamelled earrings

I’ve fancied trying out enamels for a while and came across Efcolor enamels, which are low-heat (150°) and quite inexpensive, so I thought it’d be a good way to try out the enamelling process.

As a first project, I wanted to make some earrings for my mum as it’s her birthday next week.  I cut rough leaf shapes from copper, hammered a nail through the top to make a hole (my thumb took a few hits!) and enamelled both sides in shades of green.  Then I put a couple of jump rings between the copper and the ear wire and put a few glass pearl beads on.

Here is the end result:

Enamelled earrings

They look nicer in real life!
