Bare copper hammered bracelet with snake spiral
This bare copper bracelet has a spiral on one side of the bangle and a snaking spiral on the other. The bracelet has been hammered from copper wire and pliers used to form the shape. The nature of this bangle means that it should fit most wrists. If your wrist is on the smaller side then when you relieve the bangle you can push the two sides together to make it smaller. For a larger wrist the opposite can be applied. The bangle can be worn near the wrist or further up the arm to make and arm cuff.
There are a thought to be numerous health benefits associated with wearing bare copper. When worn the piece of jewellery is thought to reduce the inflammation and pain associated with ailments such as arthritis or other associated joint inflammation disorders.
Bare copper is a natural product and as will all things in nature it will age over time and tarnish. This can cause the bracelet to darken and change colour. You may also see a verdigris colour on the bracelet similar to that which you see on the roof of some churches. The bracelet if worn constantly will leave a green mark on your skin over time. This is normal and due to the oxidation of the copper. Should you wish for this not to happen please select the coated option when ordering and the bracelet will be coated prior to dispatch.
Care should always be taken when putting on or taking off jewellery that it doesn't get pulled out of shape. There will always be some movement in the shape of the bracelet but over time as the copper moulds to your arm it will work harden.
