Long Copper Embossed Earrings with Turquoise Beads Gold Filled Wires
These long shield shaped copper embossed earrings are very striking. I handcrafted them from copper sheet. I then added 6mm Turquoise rondelle beads to the front of the earrings with red brass rivets. The turquoise goes so well with copper. I finished these 2 7/8" earrings with gold filled wires and another turquoise bead. These unique earrings are very eye catching when worn. The mixed metals of the gold and copper contrast very nicely. The last picture shows the back of the earrings.

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.
