I Love Copper

Copper is wonderful. It's fun to work with, affordable, can be recycled or reclaimed, and has a variety of nice patinas to make it unique.

I came across a website today called "I Love Copper."

Here is some information on copper that is posted on the site that I want to share with everyone:


Will Copper Turn My Skin Green?

Will Copper Turn My Wrist Turn Green

Benefits of Wearing Copper 
The use of copper for medicinal purposes is found throughout recorded history. 
The world's oldest medical texts, the Eber Papyrus, states, "Treat inflammation 
with pulverized copper". Today, thousands of years later, pharmacies 
around the world offer copper bracelets as a safe first aid for joint pains.
"Copper, when in contact with the skin, forms chelates with human sweat 
(sometimes seen as green deposits) and is thus absorbed through skin." 
"Copper chelates are more effective and less toxic than drugs being used 
to treat arthritis."
Green wrist occurances vary depending on the body chemistry of the wearer and, if desired, are easily washed off. Many expect an occassional green mark to show that the copper "is working". Copper combines with sweat, and forms compounds called chelates which are assimilated by the body. Green deposits occur when chelates are formed faster then they are absorbed. This phenomenon increases with stress and it can be intrepreted as an early warning 
to slow down.

  5. Condition is a major determining factor of the price received for your jewelry. Damaged and broken jewelry many times justify the restoration costs but most of the time damaged jewelry is only valued at its intrinsic worth.my name necklace
