Do You Ear What I Ear? :)

About this design:

It's handy having a handy husband. Recently, he built me a saltwater etch machine, complete with LED light. :) A fine tipped paint pen provides a nifty resist scribbled on both copper & brass sheet, and the two pieces are soldered together for strength.


24 g. copper sheet, 18 g brass sheet. SS earwire.

    Love these, Becca! The 2 tone metal is very cool, and you are so lucky to have an etching setup! And your title is oh so witty – wish I had come up with that!
