I really love the mix of copper and enamel in jewellery - the colour of the oxidized copper really makes the enamels jump. So continuing my "thing" about circles (it's been going on since I was a child!) I made enamelled discs in various colours and combined them with paddle-shaped copper "sticks."
I haven't mastered the art of riveting enamelled pieces yet - it IS possible, I've seen other people do it but when I tried the enamel discs cracked. Another option would be to pin the enamelled discs by balling up silver wire on either side. I tried that too and only managed to ruin the enamelled piece. It did stick to the metal I wanted to attach it to but only because the enamel had refired and it would have cracked and fallen off eventually.
So I stuck to wire wrapping the enamel disc to the metal - less risk of breaking anything!
I made these copper hoops a while ago and left them sitting on my work table until I decided what they would become. They became (......eventually) these wire wrapped hoops with three enamelled discs in turquoise, purple and mint wrapped onto the bottom so they can dangle in a shiny, happy, enamel way :D
