This is a design from my personal jewelry-box that I never wear, so it needs a new home. 

 

Silver represents the Moon, shining a light on the unseen. Wearing silver enhances intuition, love and well-being.  Copper  represents Venus and its properties amplify, promote increased energy flow and awareness, while enhancing connection between you and others.

 

This pre-owned/refurbished pair has been cleaned, polished and patina re-applied.  This is a hand-made piece of jewelry, so variations and imperfections should be expected and celebrated.  

 

Copper and Sterling Silver Earrings

  • Strong chemicals, sulfur, perspiration, chlorine, and harsh sunlight can tarnish and corrode the shine you love in your silver. Remove jewelry during the following times:

    • When Showering or bathing
    • When doing dishes, laundry, and when using cleaning supplies.
    • When exercising, at the gym, or playing contact sports
    • When showering or bathing
    • Swimming, hot tubs, or saunas. Chlorine is a harsh chemical, so if you forget to remove your silver jewelry, rinse and clean it afterward. Hot tub heat can accelerate the chemical reaction.
    • When lying in the sun
    • When applying lotion, makeup, hair products, perfume, etc. Chemicals in lotions and perfumes can also cause your jewelry to tarnish. Apply, let it dry, and then put jewelry on.
    • When preparing food or cooking
    • Outside tasks (gardening, mowing, etc.)
    • Sulfur in natural hot springs will antique your silver, so if you love the "dark oxidized" look, great! If not, take silver and copper off.

    Storage: Air exposure can tarnish silver, so use a jewelry storage container or individual bags. Don't store pieces in the same bag to avoid tangling, scratching and tarnishing. Silica gel packets provide anti-tarnish protection; so save them for your jewelry box.

    Polishing: Sterling Silver can be cared for using a simple polishing or microfiber cloth. Use long up-and-down strokes with different parts of the cloth to avoid spreading tarnish and be sure to avoid polishing any part of the jewelry that is intentionally oxidized with patina.
