Valknut Copper Pendant
All of our copper pieces are shipped bare. This means they have not been sealed with wax, lacquer or varnish. The copper can sometimes leave a green residue on your skin which washes off easily. This green mark simply indicates that your body is creating a battery effect with your copper jewelry, as well as absorbing tiny amounts of the copper. If that is something that bothers you, we recommend 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 luster. If your copper begins to oxidize (go 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.
