Copper + Fire + Glass, sterling ear wires.

I start the process with a glass compound consisting of quartz sand, iron oxide, potassium oxide, and borax, which together are colorless.  Depending on the various metal oxides and chlorides a wide range of colors are created. I fire each piece  to a precise temperature until the enamel melts and fills the space it's in, becoming shiny.  The piece is taken out to cool, and then polished with a carborundum file.  I work with both copper and silver.  Copper gives the piece a rustic handcrafted appearance that works well with any style formal or casual.
