Fold Formed Copper Leaf Earrings

Thursday was our last week of metalsmithing class for the year. I try to do things there that I can't do at home due to lack of equipment. One thing I lack is a good vice. Well, it's not like I don't have vices, just not one that will hold metal. :D So I did the folding and hammering on these earrings at class. At home I was able to cut them out and stamp the edges to give them a ripple effect. I really like the way these turned out and I might have to ask Santa Claus for a vice.


  1. From you results, your class has been very profitable

  2. Those earrings are stunning, but then I always love your work. Copper of course is my favorite. Just lovely.

  3. Beautiful earrings! I love them!

  4. Thanks, Delia! I guess I will have to break down and get a vice. These sold the first day they were out at a show.

  5. I wish there are classes like this where I live


Sorry I had to turn off comments for a while as I was getting spammed to death. For people wondering where to get the free tutorials, they are available at Szarka's website, Click on the resources and tutorials link. Thanks, Nancy
