We love these Mid-Century Copper Enamel Screwback Earrings. Handcrafted to look like eyes, and found together, it seemed a shame to separate them. Navy pair has lovely textured black framing with white enamel details, yellow pair features black enamel details.

Earrings 3/4” x 1/2”

Vitreous enamel is fused to a substrate by firing powder into a liquid state. Then it is cooled and hardens to a porcelain-like finish. Examples of enamel work go back to ancient Egypt. Copper enamel jewelry was popular in the 1950s-60s. The vibrant colors are created by the addition of various metal oxides.
