Copper Jewelry Care
How do I care for my copper jewelry?
~Remove your jewelry before washing your hands, bathing, swimming, hot tubbing, or saunas. If you wear a ring next to your electroformed ring, the metal rubbing against metal will remove the sealantand patina,very quickly.
~You might notice flakes coming off your item. If this happens it is just the sealant wearing off.
~I do not recommend storing in direct sunlight. Most items should be fine, but to be on the safe side don't leave out where it's in the sun.
~If your item was left unsealed or it has worn away and you would like to give it a polish, you can use a mild cleanser or a polishing cloth/Sunshine cloth. Polishing cloths will remove patina, but it will regain a natural patina over time. See more about sealing below.
Is your copper jewelry sealed?
Yes! All of my copper jewelry is sealed with something called ProtectaClear. This sealant is not permanent, unfortunately. If you find your skin is suddenly turning a green tinge you have a few options. If you're fine with a green finger band that's cool-it's completely harmless. You can also either dab some clear nail polish on the pendant or ring, or you can find a special sealant used for metal jewelry. As I said above, I use a brand called ProtectaClear. If you have any questions about sealing your copper jewelry, please do not hesitate to contact me. I am more than happy to assist you with any questions you may have.
