Announcement   COPPER METAL
I get most of my copper metal from the local salvage yard. I enjoy doing this because the copper has texture, shape and has lived many lives before I bring it to my shop.

PATINAS
The colored patinas I use are authentic solutions. When I describe a piece of jewelry as having a patina that means the colorful patina solution is applied, often in several layers, over a period lasting from a few hours to as long as a week. The copper pieces are never painted. The rich colors come from the patinas I apply to the copper.

SALES TAX
All customers in Texas are required to pay 8.25 percent sales tax. It will be added to your purchase at check out.

SHIPPING
I ship most pieces by UPS or First Class mail, usually the first business day after payment is received. If you want to expedite shipping or prefer a different carrier, please contact me BEFORE you pay for your item.

All large and/or valuable pieces are shipped by the United States Postal Service or UPS Pack & Ship Guarantee, at my discretion.

About

One day in 2010 I lost my marbles, left the big city and moved back to my hometown in West Texas to marry a blue-eyed boy.

A few years ago something inside me clicked when I discovered applying colored patinas onto scrap, recycled copper. It's deeply gratifying and feeds my soul. I hope you enjoy wandering around in my shop. Don't forget to stop and buy yourself a trinket or two.

INSURANCE

PATINAS USED ON ARTWORK AND JEWELRY
The patinas I use are authentic solutions. When I describe a piece of jewelry as having a patina that means the patina solution is applied, often in several layers, over a period lasting from a few hours to as long as a week.

None of the patinas are stains, paint or wax products simply applied to the surface. Many patina finishes require that the metal be heated over a flame first so a strong bond is created with the solution.

Because the patina finishes vary slightly, the colors and coverage will vary slightly on the front and back of a piece of jewelry. You will receive the EXACT piece of jewelry shown in the photos.

COPPER
All of my jewelry is new or salvaged copper which tarnishes when it reacts with moisture and sulfur in the air. Avoid using hairspray or applying makeup while wearing your jewelry. Please avoid dipping your pieces in jewelry cleaner as they strip off a layer of the copper and patina.

Items crafted by Christi Dick Art are not intended for children nor are they intended to be ingested. PLEASE keep ALL jewelry and artwork away from infants and children under 12.
