This forged cuff has a graceful strength; industrial yet elegant at the same time. It is sturdy and hard wearing, an additional plus for those of us that are hard on our jewelry.
Left to patina on its own.
Included With Your Purchase
- resealable bag with anti-tarnish strip
- Care instructions
Caring for unsealed copper
- This piece will oxidize naturally. Regular wear will keep the high points shiny, enhancing the texture of the weaves and designs.
- The natural oxidation process can be slowed by storing your wearable art in an enclosed environment such as a jewelry box or with the anti-tarnish strip in the zip bag included with your purchase.
- You may restore the shine by rubbing gently with a lint-free cloth or using a mild metal polish.
- We do not recommend using an ultrasonic cleaner with this piece. It could damage the stone and oxidation.
- Life can get in the crevices. Your wearable art may be cleaned by gently scrubbing with a toothbrush and dish soap (such as dawn or ivory.) Lay it out on a towel to dry. You may use a hairdryer to ensure no lingering moisture. Use caution as the copper can become hot.
- Avoid exposing it to acidic environments including water, detergents, lotions, hairspray and deodorants.
Sometimes We Don't Want To Go Green...
- I wear my copper jewelry next to the skin without any skin reaction (and I am sensitive to oh so many things.)
- Should you experience any greenish tinge, following the above care instructions will usually remedy the occurrence.
- There are some white papers out in cyber-land that correlate deficiencies in vitamin D and/or B-12 with an oxidation response on skin, i.e. the greenish tinge. It's worth checking out if you experience the phenomenon.
