Heavy Copper Bangle
This is a nice, substantial copper bangle. It's 4mm thick, hand forged and finished from pure copper stock in a heavy duty gauge wire.
These bangles are work hardened for strength and polished smooth for a nice, comfortable feel.
We do not coat these with any kind of sealant or lacquer, so they will take on a dark patina over time if left unpolished. Polish as you would silver with a simple jeweler's polishing cloth or jewelry safe polishing compound.
These bangles are a custom, made to order item. Please allow 1-2 weeks production time on custom orders.
How to size a bangle: For a closed loop bangle, you must be able to fit the widest part of your fist through the center of the loop.
Measure your fist from knuckle to knuckle. That measurement will tell you what diameter of bangle you need.
XS: 2.00" Diameter, 6.25" Circumference (16 Centimeters)
S: 2.25" Diameter, 7.00" Circumference (18 Centimeters)

Please don't hesitate to ask for a custom size, we are happy to accommodate all reasonable requests.
Regarding the health benefits of wearing copper: While purely anecdotal, many people claim that wearing copper helps to provide relief for the symptoms of arthritis. I, myself have found it to help relieve my carpal tunnel wrist pain when it flares up. Many ancient cultures also used copper for dressing wounds and to promote healing of various skin conditions. This is not medical advice and in all circumstances it is best to consult with your Doctor. Wear copper for it's beauty and warmth. If it helps with your physical ailments, consider it a happy bonus.
Will it turn me green?
The natural interaction between the salts and moisture in your skin and copper may cause the copper to oxidize and leave a surface coloration on your skin, the degree of which depends on your personal body chemistry and environment. This coloration washes off with soap and water.
