Frequently asked questions
Does copper change color?

The color of freshly buffed copper is similar to that of rose gold. The nature of copper is to adjust to its surroundings, often producing a natural patina. This colorful film sits atop the metal's surface and protects it from rusting. Your piece may darken or lighten.
You will build a sacred bond with your jewelry while on life's journeys. Embrace all the unique colors that copper can create!

The darker pieces you see in my shop were hand antiqued and rapidly darkened by oxidizing the metal. These colors may lighten with time and wear. Refrain from wearing jewelry when showering, swimming or washing your hands.

How will the copper affect my skin?

Copper responds differently to each person and climate. Pendants don't generally affect your skin because there is a good amount of air flow between the metal and your skin whilst wearing. Rings, however, can sometimes leave harmless green marks on your finger if your hand is moist. They wash off easily with soap and water. It's just the copper protecting itself from moisture and giving you some love! It will never rust. Some people don't experience lines at all.
I find that the climate you live in dictates your copper's behavior the most, as well as how moist your skin is. Copper is a micro-nutrient in the body and has been used throughout time for its grounding properties. It can generally always be polished beck to bright copper.

Can I wear my jewelry in the shower or swimming?

I would not recommend wearing any jewelry if you are going to be submerging yourself in water. Excess water can cause your copper to oxidize faster. Remove all jewelry before jumping in the shower or the pool!
With my own pieces, I remove them before washing my hands as well.
Technically water will not harm copper and will only create colorful films on top of the metal.

But please keep in mind that some chains are not solid copper and may rust if you let them get wet. Pure copper doesn’t rust. Some softer crystals may not be safe to be submerged in water either.
Always dry your jewelry thoroughly if you accidentally get it wet.

What is patina?

Patina is a natural color film that can temporarily form on top of the surfaces of metal. Copper is known for changing colors easily depending on climate and moisture. Thanks to these films, copper can never rust!
When copper is pristine and buffed, the color resembles rose gold. It's very hard to keep this color because copper is always reacting to its environment. It can, however, always be polished back to its original color. I try to send polishing cloth pads with every order for your future cleaning needs.
The darker pieces that you see in my shop have been rapidly oxidized to bring out rich tones in the copper. This film may lighten with regular wear.

Care instructions

I include care instructions with every package. Keep your jewelry as dry as possible. Copper may lighten or darken with time.
Keep the polishing pad that I send in your order for future cleaning needs.
Please ask me directly about anything you can't find on my page!

Can I return my jewelry

I do not accept cancellations or returns.

If for some reason something is broken, notify me immediately so we can discuss. All rings are carefully sized and checked again before shipment. Please know your exact ring size before purchasing because I cannot accept returns on rings, and I always double check sizes to make sure you get the size you ordered. If there is a problem with your order, please message me in a timely manner so I can try to make it better for you. I try very hard to make sure my clients are happy, and many of them have become long term clients and friends. They are the backbone of my business and the reason I keep creating every day of my life.
