Sticky Lemon Drop Earrings – I cut copper circles, domed and enameled them for these earrings. The enamel color is really a green-yellow but used sparingly it looks lemony. I like how they look with these darkened brass hoops. The enamel pieces reminded me of hard lemon candy. The entire combination brings to mind gingerbread with lemon sauce. My Mom made the best.
