I create my copper finishes using a Japanese technique called "Hiirodo" where I heat the finished copper shape until brightly glowing, then plunge it into boiling water to achieve a plum red appearance. I finish these with 23k goldleaf. The earwires are sterling silver, plated with 18k gold (vermeil) and left sterling where they rest in your ear. They clip closed in the back.
