Embossed Patinaed Copper Pendant with Green Jasper and Red Tiger Eye Necklace and Earring Set
The 1 1/2" Handcrafted and Embossed and domed Copper Pendant is the focal of this lovely set. To compliment the pendant I added dark green Jasper and Red Tiger Eye gemstones. Decorative large copper beads are also interspersed throughout the necklace. The necklace is finished with a copper chain and copper toggle clasp. The matching dangle earrings with matching domed copper pieces measure 2 3/8 inches long measured from the top of the ear wires.
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.
JASPER – Jasper is one of the oldest known gemstones and is a strong securing gemstone. All Jaspers offer protection and securing or grounding energies.
TIGER'S EYE (also called Tigers eye or Tiger eye) is a chatoyant gemstone that is usually a metamorphic rock that is a golden to red-brown colour, with a silky luster. Red Tiger Eye aids in enhancing confidence and self-esteem. It provides motivation to the non-motivated and energizes those who are feeling lethargic.
While all forms of Tiger Eye help to raise vibrations, they also connect these energies to the lower Chakras in balance, which keeps one from feeling disconnected when working with higher goals. Carry Red Tiger Eye in your pocket when you want to add vitality and passion to any project you’re working on. Red Tiger Eye can enhance balance within one's energy field, and allows one to open up to unconditional love.
