In these colorful primitive copper earrings, I use a verdigris patina and then added a blue patina around the border. The red jasper makes a wonderful contrast to the cool colors.
It was only a matter of time before I made a pair of earrings in honor of Frida Kahlo. Frida surrounded herself with vivid colors, animals, and a lush garden full of birds that inspired her, and later her students. Her imagination was fertile with images that were authentic and primitive as they made their way to her canvasses in paint. To me, those images are exhilarating, haunting and unforgettable.
