These are the first prototypes; the earring on the left is my first piece but it doesn't wrap as much as I would like, I am having trouble getting the same etch texture with my latest silver pieces.
The middle earring is the type of effect/wrap that I want
The one on the right is my experimental piece with intaglio etching and torch fire enamelling.
This picture was experimental etching done with torch firing
This piece of copper is a relief etch which I will be constructing my next earrings with, I will then enamel and grind them until the copper pattern shows through which I will then silver plate and hopefully the pattern will show through in silver with an enamelled back ground.
