Did you know?

Did you know?  Copper is an amazing metal.  It directs energy and increases the flow of blood.  Copper provides strong energy to the body and brain.  It helps to heal the metabolism, and may relieve exhaustion. Copper also aids in healing sexual instability.

Approximately 4 weeks have passed in between the two anklet photos below.  The difference between the two is dramatic.  While there are ways to speed up the natural patina or antiquing process of copper, what you see in the second photo is a result of the natural aging process.

Copper will naturally patina over time from exposure and wear.  Now, I personally love the antiqued look of aged copper, however, it's not for everyone.  Exposure to air, water, the oils in our skin will speed up the natural antiquing process of copper.

Like the original shine better?  No problem! ...just drop your copper piece in salted lemon water for a few moments, rinse with cold water & dry to bring it back.  Keep in mind this is an ongoing process.   Enjoy!!
