Womens Empowerment Engraved Copper Bracelet by GardensGateJewelry
Actually, I can.
And you can too!
Additional words of support, praise or encouragement can be engraved on the inside of the bracelet. We all have something else to say, how’s your chance!
There is discussion that copper has healing properties. Some say that it can help relieve the pain and stiffness of arthritis, as well as carpal tunnel syndrome.
When you are ordering your size, consider a 6 inch size for a small to medium, 7 inches would be perfect for a large. These bracelets have wiggle room in the sizing.This bracelet has some play in it and it is flexible enough to stretch a little or squeeze a little. Don’t get too carried away though! If you go too far it can break!
Copper develops a lovely patina over time. I adore that patina, but not everyone does. If you want to bring it back to the shiny copper just take a little bit of ketchup or copper polish, rub it on a let it sit for a bit then rinse off( ketchup* if you use a polish make sure to follow the instructions) and polish back to its original shine.
Some people react to copper and get a green tinge on their skin. That tinge is said to be harmless, but to avoid that I will apply a coating of acrylic sealer on the inside of the bracelet unless you tell me otherwise. It does wear off after a few months but you can put a coat of clear nail polish on the inside and it will do the same thing.
If you have any questions or want to create a custom piece, send me a message and we can talk about it! I look forward to helping you design your perfect piece of jewelry.
Each bracelet is handmade, and no two will be exactly alike. Also please be aware that colors may vary slightly due to viewing screens.How to determine your size:
The 6 inch bracelet is a 6 inch length of copper with a 1 inch opening. This size will fit a wide range of wrists, from 5 1/2 inches up to 7 inches.
The 7 inch bracelet is a 7 inch length of copper, with a 1 inch opening. This size will fit wrists from 7 inches up to 8 1/2 inches.
Measuring for your size:
There are several ways to measure your wrist.
First: Use a flexible tape measure and measure around your wrist at the spot where you prefer your bracelets to sit. If it measures between 5 1/2 and 7 inches, choose the 6 inch bracelet. If your wrist measures over 7 inches, choose the 7 inch bracelet. There is wiggle room in the sizing. You can go bigger or smaller depending on if you like a looser or tighter bracelet.
If you don’t have a tape measure but do have a ruler, wrap a strip of paper around your wrist and mark off the length. Check the size against a ruler.
Caring for your copper jewelry:
Tarnish and discoloration is a normal part of copper jewelry and is to be expected. Periodically you should wash your copper jewelry in warm soapy water, making sure to dry it thoroughly with a soft cloth. In between washing, buff it with a polishing cloth to help keep the tarnish down. When you aren’t wearing your piece, store it in the box it came in, or in a closed plastic zip bag to keep the tarnish to a minimum.
Copper will turn some peoples skin green. It isn’t harmful, and it is very normal and it washes off with soap and water.
