This amulet features a gorgeous chunk of blue kyanite encased in woven copper and trapped with annealed copper wire. When I made this piece, I had intended for the front to be the side with minimal lines in the corners, but upon finishing the piece, I think the back, although slightly more chaotic, also looks pretty.
Blue Kyanite is commonly associated with communication, self-expression and clarity.
Length: approx 2.75 in (7 cm)
Width: approx 1 in (2.5 cm)
Includes cord to wear the pendant as a necklace.
Blue Kyanite Amulet
We finish all of our copper pieces with wax. However, as the wax wears off, it can leave a green residue on your skin, which washes off easily. If that is something that bothers you, we recommend re-sealing it in wax or lacquer. The easiest way to do this is with clear nail polish.
Typically, as long as you continue to wear your copper jewelry; your skin will rub against it, oiling, cleaning and polishing it. This will maintain a very rustic, natural-looking patina and level of lustre. If your copper oxidizes (goes green) over time, you can clean it and shine it up with any of a number of jewelry cleaners on the market. You can also scrub your copper with baking soda and then rinse and dry thoroughly.
