This is an intricate braid made to look like the handle of an old sword found in the 1,000 year old Viking stone parliament in Reykjavik, Iceland.
Our red metal is Pure Copper. It is free of lead, mercury or other contaminants that are common in industrial grade copper wires. Copper is one of the friendliest elements as it combines with many others. To find copper this pure in nature is far more difficult than finding pure gold. Science has already proven that copper is essential for our health and is absorbed through the skin, so besides their beauty, our bracelets can also be considered a time-release source of an essential mineral. For more information see Copper Benefits.
Our bracelets are made to be worn at all times and everywhere. We finish them with a thin layer of organic lacquer meant to wear off unnoticeably with use. If you wish to have immediate metal contact, simply wipe the inside of a bracelet with nail polish remover. All the metals we use are solid, with no platting to wear off, therefore any scratch or blemish can be easily removed with a polishing cloth, brass polish, or by rubbing with a lemon rind and ashes. The easiest way to keep our bracelets clean is by taking showers with them on. With this minimal care they should age gracefully with you and last for generations.
