These dancing skeletons are perfect for Halloween and SHIPS FREE with goodies!
They are etched copper and layers of enamel bringing you an ancient technique called bass-taille. Basse-taille, which translates from the French as “shallow cut”, is a design made on metal most often by carving, but in this case...etching. The recesses formed by etching cause the enamel to have different color values. For these skeletons, I filled the etch (the skeleton) with white enamel, sanded down smooth, and layered a clear transparent layer on top.
Each skeleton has been fired in the kiln 5-8 times, sanded down smooth and hangs on a hand fabricated sterling silver earring wire. Each piece is unique because firing times and temperatures vary...no two earrings are EXACTLY alike.
TRICK OR TREAT: All halloween inspired jewelry comes wrapped in 1Halloween goodie bags, and lots of treats!
