Birds in Trees Textured Copper Earrings


Use what talents you possess; the woods would be very silent if no birds sang there except those that sang best.  (Henry Van Dyke)

I hand-fabricated these earrings by cutting out and acid etching the image of the birds on the branches.  Then I soldered those pieces to a larger square that I cut out of copper sheet, shaped, and textured.

The earwires are hypallergenic niobium.

Total length of earrings from the top of the earwire to the bottom of the textured square is about 1½ inches.
