Frequently asked questions
What is Electroforming???

Short answer: Electroforming is method of metalworking which uses an electrical current to manipulate and transfer pure copper particles from one source to conductive parts of jewelry.

What is Electroforming (continued from above)

Really long answer: I first create a jewelry piece by connecting parts (crystals, stones, metal parts, etc) with a permanent, two part hard clay. After the clay is hardened (24 hrs), I use a removable, latex-based coating to cover and protect all stones/crystals. After the coating has cured, I use a special handmade paint which is electrically conductive to paint all areas on the piece where I desire copper to grow. Once these steps are completed, the jewelry piece will be dangled into an acid solution - this solution also contains a piece of pure copper. An electrical rectifier is used to clamp onto the jewelry piece and onto the copper source to transfer particles onto the piece - the copper will grow on the painted areas of the piece!

Won't copper turn my skin green?

Maybe! Maybe not!

All of my pieces have gone through a special sealing process where I have applied a clear coating on the finished metal. This is usually enough to prevent skin marks on most people, however it is still possible that you may have a reaction. Any discolorations are harmless and wash away easily, so there is nothing to worry about. I wear my own copper rings every day and I have never had any issues.

Color change due to contact with copper is typically indicative of an acid body- drinking more water and having a more balance diet will help!

You can also paint the inside of ring bands with clear nail polish :)

What are the benefits of copper?

Copper is a wonderful and natural metal that has been used (and even preferred) in jewelry for ages. It is an element which is conductive and high vibration. It was believed in ancient times that wearing copper jewelry allows your skin to absorb beneficial minerals which can help fight inflammation, pain, and stiffness, though these statements are not necessarily supported by all doctors today.

Care instructions

1. Each piece has a hand painted patina which has been sealed with a clear coating. Please take jewelry off before bathing, showering, washing hands, or using lotions to preserve the intended look of the piece.

2. I use real crystals in my jewelry which means that some pieces may be delicate! Although the structural integrity of each piece is checked and tested, be conscious when wearing delicate pieces not to knock, bang, or drop jewelry to keep your crystals happy :)

3. Love them!
