I love this ring, it's gorgeous! And it shipped super quick! It does turn my finger green if I wear it days in a row without taking it off, but it's fine during normal wear!

About

Upcycled Jewelry by Carpe Diem Alch

Hello, my name is Mariela. I am the owner/designer & Jewelry maker behind CDA.

I have been making jewelry since early 2015. I specialize in making electroformed jewelry from copper.

Electroforming is a metal forming process that forms copper parts through electrodeposition. It let's me recycle/upcycle & repurpose 100% copper finds!
Anything from copper wire, copper pipes, copper bolts, copper spoons, plates, sheets etc.

All my pieces are handcrafted in my tiny in home studio, on a lovely succulent farm!
I get most of my inspiration from our garden. I am a self taught metal artist and I enjoy creating each piece by hand, one by one. I hope that when you wear our gems you feel that love and passion for handmade & that you're able to treasure my pieces for a lifetime.

If you have any request on stones and custom orders. Feel free to email me or message me here on etsy & I will see what I can do for you.

Thank you for supporting handmade.
"Carpe Diem!"
-Mariela

Frequently asked questions

Copper Jewelry

Copper jewelry is very special & may patina on it's own.

With proper care you can keep your ring as dark or as shinny as you'd like.

*If you'd like to keep your pieces shiny a polished pad & proper storage will do the trick. The natural oils in our body keep the copper bright so the more you wear your copper jewelry the brighter it will stay.

A patina is used to darken the copper to get a more earthy raw look.

Depending on how the piece was polished, each piece varies in it's own color. Some pieces might be darker/lighter then others.

For other FAQ scroll down to read more info on copper jewelry.

Why Is My Finger Turning Green?

Don't worry turning green is one of the lux. of wearing copper jewelry!
Copper is the oldest metal ore, People who are deficient in copper may benefit from wearing copper jewelry, since it can be absorbed through the skin therefor rubbing on your skin & turning your finger green.
The greening on your skin can be easily removed by rubbing some warm water and soap.
I no longer seal my jewelry with any jewelry sealer, wax or lacquer.
If you would like to prevent your finger from turning green a quick DIY trick is to seal the rim of your ring with clear nail polish or a lacquer from any of your local craft store. Keep in mind if you do seal your ring it will prevent you from absorbing any of the health benefits that copper can have.

How Can I Clean My Jewelry From Home?

Cleaning your jewelry with home products is fun and simple here are a few options to clean your copper jewelry at home.

1.) Combine equal parts of lemon juice and baking soda to form a paste and rub the paste on your jewelry. Rinse with warm water & dry thoroughly.

2.) Rinse the piece off with water and dry it thoroughly with a polishing cloth. (sunshine polishing pad from rio works best!)

3.) Rub your jewelry with a small amount of ketchup or tomato juice. Rinse well and dry with a polishing cloth.

Always remember to dry your pieces thoroughly & store them in a jewelry pouch to prolong your gems.

Sizing details

US sizes may vary due to the electroforming process, please allow for variations.

Please be certain of your ring size before purchasing. Due to the electroforming process a ring that does not fit can not be re sized & will have to be made again from start to finish.
Thank You
