This week I've gotten some time in at the workbench during that extra early morning time and it's been a nice way to start the week days. I worked on a group of fold formed earrings and I really love the outcome.
I started with a fairly substantial piece of copper that I annealed and folded and annealed and hammered and annealed and hammered.
I'm drawn to the red of a heat patina on copper but decided to change things up a little bit after I got the earrings cut and sanded. I put the copper pieces in a container with ammonia and salt to develop a blue patina instead. The result is pretty rustic and a great match to the organic look of fold forming.
