I took copper wire and formed them into little clover-leaf shapes, added them to pale green glass pearls, and hung them from antiqued copper ear wires.
All of the copper has been treated with an anti-tarnish coating that should also prevent it from greening your skin. If this wears off, a quick coat of clear fingernail polish will seal it up again. Rubbing the wire with wax should also help.
To prolong the life of your jewelry, avoid contact with lotions, perfumes, soaps, detergents, sunscreen, pool chemicals, and sweat. If your jewelry contacts any of these substances, gently wash with water then dry off the earrings immediately with a soft cloth.
If you would prefer hypoallergenic surgical steel hooks instead of the antiqued copper ones shown, please send me a note during the checkout process.
