Taking care of your LONG POINTED OVAL COPPER AND TURQUOISE EARRINGS does not have to be a big thing either. These handmade earrings received a Patina Coating to blacken the metal to increase details on the surface. Wipe them just the same with a soft cloth to remove any sweat. We also offer the earrings without Patina.
So why does your skin turn green while wearing copper? That phenomena is known as the reaction to oxidation. The metal reacts with oxygen in the air, your sweat, and skin oils creating a green layer of copper carbonate on your skin. This effect can be greater if the wearer takes meds that react with copper oxidation.
The wearer of copper jewelry like our bestselling LARGE WIRE WRAPPED ADJUSTABLE TURQUOISE BEADS COPPER WIRE BRACELET can not completely avoid oxidation. Through some effort and caring, copper jewelry like our HANDMADE TEARDROP BANGLE will look great for a long time.
Copper is said to be beneficial to Arthritis Inflammation sufferers like myself. Through the constant working with copper I have gained greater dexterity and flexibility in both of my hands especially in the morning when the swelling and the pain is the worst. FYI I also cut out all potatoes and potatoe starch out of my diets as it is in all type of noodles even GF noodles.
