Find four simple care tips for your copper jewelry.1. Wipe your copper jewelry clean with a soft damp cloth then dry thoroughly if you start to see tarnish forming. Avoid using acids on your jewelry if you'd like to maintain patina. If you want to take a patina off, simply use a mix of lemon juice and salt together and wipe onto copper with a soft cloth. Once it has brightened to your liking, simply clean off with a damp soft cloth and pat dry.
2. Polish your jewelry often if you tend to wear perfumes, makeup or wear in water. Polishing your copper jewelry helps to maintain its shine and luster. You can use various eco friendly polishes such as bees wax (easily found online).
3. Avoid water. I advise you and all my customers to take any copper jewelry off before you take a shower, bath, or go swimming for any length of time. Getting your copper jewelry wet is not going to ruin it right away, but over time it can cause the finishing coat to wear away, this exposes the jewelry to the elements and can lead to oxidization.
4. Proper sealant. Copper jewelry that’s coated and finished properly maintains a lustrous shine. But when the coating is allowed to wear away, the jewelry can be at risk of oxidization and aging quicker.
But don’t worry!
There’s good news, copper jewelry is super easy to maintain and restore. It’s very low maintenance if any maintenance is needed at all. In replacement of polish, you can use Protectaclear for a longer lasting finish! Simply apply with a sponge brush and let dry for 12 hours, front and back one at a time.
Rustic hand-crafted copper jewelry can be restored with ease and can be re-sealed with minimal effort using a non-toxic, sustainable finish, like the one I use to seal all my designs.
Is Copper Jewelry Safe to Wear?
In short, yes. Copper jewelry has been said to have countless health benefits.
Some health benefits that have been studied related to wearing copper jewelry include the following:
- Anti-inflammatory properties.
- Helps ease and relieve joint pain like arthritis.
- Helps cleanse the blood.
- Helps with balance.
The benefits are not 100% certain since scientific studies show little-to-no evidence in social experiments wearing various copper accessories with varying ailments. However, copper jewelry is still easy on the eye and all my designs are made with love so it’s a win-win in my opinion.
