Heat-Colored Metal or Torched Metal Jewelry is created with a blowtorch and ice cold air, alternating. As the metal heats, it oxidizes. Cold halts the transition. Different rates or amounts of heat applied determine the thickness of this layer. The vibrant colors appear by means of diffraction, with the color depending on the thickness of the oxide layer.
