Copper is a lustrous, orange-red element that has been used by artisans since the 5th and 6th millennium BC. It is a wonderful rich looking metal that also kills and inhibits the growth of bacteria and other micro-organisms.

Some people believe copper helps arthritis and others think it is a myth.
Copper will produce a natural patina over time and can be cleaned by rubbing the ring with a little regular toothpaste, rinsed and dried.

Sometimes when copper comes in contact with skin that is acidic. The acids in your skin reacts with copper and makes copper salts which are green. They are harmless and can simply be washed off.
OR you can also coat this ring with clear nail polish

I received my crochet ring today. I absolutely love it!

Such a handy little thing. Genius. Little bit of a learning curve to override the usual way I knit but improved it already. Thanks

I really like using this ring to tension yarn. It takes time to get used to it, but it is great.

HOW TO LOOK AFTER YOUR NEW JEWELLERY
Now that you have this lovely, handmade jewellery, it's easy to look after it. As with all silver, it will naturally patina over time and you can polish it with a jeweller's cloth or silver polish which will bring back the original lustre.
Store your jewellery in a closed plastic bag.

HOW TO CLEAN COPPER JEWELRY
- clean the jewellery with a copper or silver polish and then wash with soap and water, dry thoroughly
- clean the jewellery with lemon juice and sprinkle with salt, rub and then wash with soap and water, dry thoroughly
- clean the jewellery with toothpaste (regular toothpaste with no whiteners, etc.) and an old toothbrush rub and then wash with soap and water, dry thoroughly
- when not in use, keep all clean jewellery in a plastic baggie and add a little drying bag ( the tiny bags of silica sand found in new shoe boxes, etc.)

WILL THIS RING OR BRACELET TURN MY SKIN GREEN?
That's a good question. Skin reacts to copper and brass in different ways and sometimes it will turn your skin green when worn. One can’t tell without wearing the metal, if the skins will react or not.
When copper or brass reacts with skin, it’s only oxidation and less likely to happen with a bracelet than a ring because there is more air circulating a bracelet. If your skin does react with the metal, the reaction will usually disappear over night or can be washes off with soap and water.

HOW TO PREVENT A GREEN SKIN REACTION?
- keep the ring and/or bracelet clean by wiping away the skin oil and dirt after wearing the jewellery
- take the jewellery off at night and clean it before you wear it
- coat the jewellery with clear nail polish to prevent the metal from coming in contact with the skin and prevent the skin from turning green (reapplication will be needed occasionally)
- coat the jewellery with car polish or a floor polish will prevent the metal from coming in contact with the skin and prevent the skin from turning green
- use hand or body lotion on the skin under the ring or bracelet
Coatings are fast and effective, and will need reapplication occasionally.

NOW that you know all about this wonderful, handmade jewellery, enjoy wearing it and remember it's contemporary art jewellery that has a lot of history.
