Each piece of copper in our Verdigris Collection, is first hand cut from solid copper sheet metal. After filing and polishing, chief designer Billie Hackett, uses a special technique to quick age the copper pieces, creating the finish you see here. This is the result of speeding up the aging process copper goes through as it would naturally age in the elements. It is a breakdown of the copper, and not a painted or faux finish. When the color is complete, Billie uses a jewelry grade clear sealer to coat and protect the finish. Do not try to clean these pieces, and do not wear in or near salt water.
This pair is wrapped with Sterling silver wire, and hung on hand formed wires of the same.
