Working with Copper (Jewelry Design)

I have always been a jewelry fanatic. I love how you can get creative and express yourself with color and texture without being “in your face”. I took up metalsmithing in 2011 and fell in love. Working with your hands while creating beautiful pieces of wearable art is super fulfilling.

Although I have worked with Silver, Gold, and Brass, Copper is by far my favorite metal to work with. Copper is relatively cheap and looks beautiful. I personally love copper with myskin tne.  

Mixing metals is a great way to bring interest to a piece. I love the combo of brass and copper together. Silver and copper is also a classy mix of metals.
