A full moon rising at twilight inspired this “Twilight Moonrise” Series that features deep blue enamel on copper shapes and white freshwater pearls. Two sizes of dangle earrings and a bold round pendant are available in this new addition to my series, to wear alone or to mix & match.
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 dangles 1 3/8” drop from top of earwire; oval dangle is 1” x 5/8”; 5 mm freshwater pearl
Medium dangles 1 5/8” drop from top of earwire; oval dangle is 1 1/4” x 7/8”; 8 mm freshwater pearl
Pendant 1 1/4” diameter domed circle; 8 mm freshwater pearl; 29” gunmetal fine “satellite” chain
The earrings dangle from oxidized sterling silver hand formed earwires. Oxidized sterling silver wire wraps each pearl to dangle freely.
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 & gold gradient.
My design is meant to evoke that magical time at twilight when the light is fading and the dark is falling--creating a backdrop for a glowing full moon. They are my original design, handmade one by one with subtle natural variations, but each is very similar.
Jewelry is presented in my signature boxes, ready to ship, ready to gift. More original works in vitreous enamels can be found here
