Announcement   Welcome to Leah Hoffman Jewelry Design. I love using copper and silver. I handcraft each piece of jewelry right here in Des Moines, IA.
Did you know that some of the copper wire that I use to make my pieces is actually scrap copper that my contractor father-in-law gives me? It's called "upcycling" and it's about taking something that would otherwise be discarded and breathing new life into it. He brings me buckets of old cords and wires he pulls out of construction jobs. I strip, clean and measure the gauge of the wire. Then, I use that wire to create the very jewelry you see here on my site. It's Earth friendly. It's really cool that in another life your necklace, viking knit bracelet or Bold Swirl Ring might have had a current running through it, giving power to somebody's home.
Working with wire has hardened my fingertips, broken my nails, poked and scratched my skin, but it's heightened my creativity, challenged my mind, and helped me produce art that makes me proud.

A word about copper- Copper naturally tarnishes. To keep your copper jewelry looking beautiful there is a certain amount of maintenance that you will have to do. I include a special polishing block with my exclusive Bold Swirl Rings and simple instructions on how to shine up a ring that might have tarnished.For pendants and viking knit I do not recommend using a polishing block. I strongly recommend getting a Sunshine Cloth from Rio Grande or get a treated polishing cloth from a drug store or even a big box store. You can find them in the costume jewelry section or by where the watches are sold. In a pinch, you can dab a cotton ball with some vinegar or lemon juice and lightly dab the jewelry until it's back to its desired color. You can then use a soft cloth to polish the copper.

Copper is also reactive with skin and in some people it will turn the part of the skin in which it comes in contact with green, brown or grey. This is not harmful to the person or the jewelry. It's simply a matter of chemistry and how your skin reacts to the metal. Personally, I do not turn green when I wear copper. My husband does.***I do not accept returns based on this natural occurrence.***

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.
