It takes a 32-step process to complete each piece. Copper sheets are polished, silver-plated and the designs are printed onto the silver-plated surface. All pieces are cut-out by hand using jewelers’ shears which are then meticulously diamond cut so that they sparkle as if they have diamonds inserted in them. This makes the handcrafted jewelry look more expensive.
All handmade copper jewelry is made from 99% copper. Copper is a safe metal and many people buy copper jewelry to wear for health reasons. Each piece is made by hand, handcrafting copper sheets into unique one-of-a-kind jewelry. The copper sheets are then polished using buffing tools and steel brushing to achieve the matte and subtle effect on each piece. Special finishes are applied to make them last for years, so they can be enjoyed without any special care. These protective coatings also protect the copper jewelry from tarnishing.
These pieces should not be worn in the shower as soap and detergents may harm the finish. Rings especially should be removed when washing and should not come into contact with hand sanitizers. Wearing is not recommended during sports, swimming, or gardening. With proper care, you will enjoy them for many, many years.
