How is this made??

I create each piece by “growing” copper onto crystal and other materials using a really cool process called Electroforming. In a bath of mysterious blue acid I cook my little beauties using electricity until they are just right. The “cook” as I like to call it can take anywhere from twelve hours up to two or three days. The copper forms beautiful textures on the pieces and as it sits in the bath groves and lines form and bumps and nodules grow and embrace the crystals. I love the natural metal so many of my pieces are the raw copper, others are darkened with a patina.  I do not seal my pieces which means they may oxidize and age over time.

Copper

Copper reacts differently with people’s body chemistry and some people experience skin discoloration, usually on the fingers or the back of the neck. The slight green tint can be easily washed away with soap and water. It is not an allergic reaction. Wearing Copper can have many health benefits and it is an essential mineral for all humans. The slow absorption of minerals through the skin helps to ease inflammation and joint pain and detoxify the body.

Natural Stones

The crystals I use are hand picked by me. I like being connected to the things that I make, hand picking each stone allows me to feel its energy before making it into a piece of beautiful jewelry for you! If you feel something calling to you.. it is! These are naturally occurring materials, inclusion, fractures, mineral deposits and other irregularities are very common. I have inspected each stone before incorporating it into a piece of jewelry.

Care instructions

Jewelry Care
Please handle your jewelry with care, avoid dropping. While copper is a sturdy metal it can be misshapen under stress. Crystals and stones need to be treated kindly. Avoid submersion in water or direct exposure to lotions, perfumes or harsh cleaners. These can permanently tarnish or discolor the copper and the stones.
To clean your jewelry gently buff with a soft cloth.
Polishing cloths and liquid jewelry cleaners contain compounds that can damage some stones. You can use them on the copper to clean it, but be careful not to touch the stones. I package all my pieces with care instructions, please read them closely!
