Today's earrings are a simple hanging leaf made with the fold form technique. The photos below show front and back.
The hand cut and forged copper leaves hang on a sterling silver earring wire and chain. The black-to-red color range is a patina resulting from the heat of the torch used in-process. This "fold formed" technique takes advantage of the natural properties of copper when hammered and heated, to take on the natural, organic appearance of a leaf. See them here in the shop.
Finished at 1:30 on such a lovely day! Time to get out of the house and enjoy it.
