Classic Billie Holiday Portrait of her singing her heart out.♥
small earrings // etched // copper // antique finish // handmade with love
{ i n s p i r a t i o n }
My exposure to jazz musicians and iconic jazz & blues vocalists began with my mother who insisted on listening to jazz while we cleaned the house, but my deeper appreciation developed when I was a teenager and got a job at a music store. I worked at the music store for two years and in that time I was exposed to music from all over the world, of different eras, and of different musical genres, but in my exposure to the variety of music, I always found myself coming back to Lady Day-- the beautiful Billie Holiday. It was the way I could feel her emotions spill over the lyrics and envelope my being, pulling at my heart strings, using the power of her voice to have me feel her love, loss, passion and difficulty in navigating what the heart wants in that stormy weather.♥

I begin by cutting the large circles out of a piece of copper, then the piece of copper goes through many steps to emerge with the final piece you see pictured above. The copper is polished, cleaned, heated, inked, etched, cleaned again, buffed, oxidized, buffed again, filed, tumbled, polished, hammered, a final polish and finally several hours later, the copper earrings emerge antiqued, etched & ready to be added to your earring collection! ♥
