Caring for your copper jewelry

Caring for your copper jewelry

I love the natural patina that happens with time and wear. If this is your preference as well, do nothing but wear it! The textured surface will have brighter high spots and darker low spots. The raised parts will get shiny with wear and the low spots will naturally darken. This truly makes the piece unique and your own. Many of my pieces are treated with a liver of sulfur patina and sealed with a protective wax. Here I am cleaning up after applying the patina. I recommend a re-seal every few months, depending on the amount of wear.  BEWARE!...
