Handcrafted Embossed Round Wisteria Patinaed Copper Pendant on Chain with Matching Earrings
This very pretty yet simple 1 5/8" Embossed Wisteria Patinaed Copper Pendant was handcrafted by me from copper metal sheet. After cutting the shape it was embossed and then patinaed. This Necklace measures 17" long. It is hung on a patinaed copper chain. The matching dangle earrings are 2 1/4" measured from the top of the ear wires. The last picture shows the back of the pendant.

COPPER is a reddish gold metal that patinas to a warm brown. The oldest known metal, it was associated with the Greek goddess Aphrodite and her Roman counterpart, Venus. The discovery of copper dates from prehistoric times. There are reports of copper beads dating back to 9000BC found in Iraq. Methods for refining copper from its ores were discovered around 5000BC and a 1000 or so years later it was being used in pottery in North Africa
Keeping copper clean and dry, removing any oil or perspiration helps prevent oxidation. Although it can tarnish over time, copper resists tarnish better than many other jewelry metals (including sterling which turns black). When it does oxidize it takes on a soft brown, antiqued color as it darkens, a much sought after "vintage" look in jewelry. The tarnish on copper can be easily removed if you prefer a bright look. If you do prefer the bright look, keep your copper piece in an air tight bag or jewelry box to prevent tarnish when not wearing. In addition, Copper jewelry is often considered to have healing properties.
