Local (Woodstock, Il) update. The oval earrings & the large pendant listed here are currently for sale at The Old Courthouse Art Center. Please feel free to contact them to purchase or, if you’re on the wait list, we’ll be in touch when new pieces are complete.
Meanwhile, a second listing of a different snowflake assortment is available here:
Silver snowflakes on deep blue transparent enameled copper shapes. Two sizes of round pendants on rolo chains and two shapes of dangle earrings to mix and match or to enjoy one by one. These are all made to order.
Each enameled shape is created by hand and there will be some variations. Sizes & shapes are listed below and are shown in my photos.
My "Atmosphere Series" began in 2013 when I began to work with hot glass (vitreous) enamels. And for the past 5 years, I’ve explored & been inspired by skies, weather & skyscapes.
Domed copper shapes are repeatedly coated with fine glass particles that are bonded to copper under high heat in a kiln. Vitreous enamels are permanent, durable, fade proof, & waterproof.
Small leaf dangle earrings 1 1/2” drop from top of earwire; domed dangle is 1 1/8” x 3/4”; Oxidized sterling silver earwires
Oval dangle earrings 1 5/8” drop from top of earwire; oval domed dangle is 1 3/16” x 3/4”; Oxidized sterling silver earwires
Small Round Pendant 1” diameter domed circle; 25” fine gunmetal rolo chain
Large Round Pendant 1 1/4” diameter domed circle; 29” gunmetal medium sized rolo chain
Color and glossy surfaces are glass bonded to copper through multiple firings to between 1450 and 1500 degrees F. The front & back of each component feature my transparent dark blue enamel with silvery snowflake details.
My design is meant to evoke that magical time when snowflakes are falling. They are my original design, handmade one by one with natural variations, but each is similar to the designs in my photos.
Jewelry is presented in my signature boxes, ready to ship, ready to gift. More original works in vitreous enamels can be found here
