Artist Statement:

These are torch fired enamel earring on copper. I was inspired by the fall weather we were having in 2021 and the waves I would witness while on the drive to and from school. These earrings were completed in three layers: 1 counter (on the back) and then 2 design layers with Undercoat White and Persian Blue. The white is an opaque color and the blue is a transparent. The transparent blue separated here and there to create a crackle look and resembles the surface bubbles.
