How Do I Care For My Copper Jewelry?

The Best way to care for your Copper is to wear it often  The natural oils from your skin will keep the copper, and pearls nice and shiny. Copper will acquire a beautiful patina over time. We feel that the patina is part of the natural beauty of the metal. 

As much as possible do not wear your jewelry when working out or doing any heavy physical activity that will cause excessive sweating. 

Clean your copper jewelry with a soft cloth if dirty you can use some liquid dish soap.

If you prefer, you can coat the metal with clear fingernail polis to maintain the shine. 


Why Does Copper Sometimes Turn My Skin Green?

Have you ever noticed a green tint on your skin after wearing copper jewelry? That is a chemical reaction between the copper, oxygenand the sweat on your skin. The process is called oxidization and is your body's way of absorbing the copper. Copper is an essential element and your body needs it. If you skin is turning green it is your body's way of telling you that something is missing. 


Where Can I Find Cherokee Copper In Person?

We are frequently asked if we have a store location. The answer is someday. But for now you can find us in cultural gift shops, museums and art galleries from Cape Code to Tahlequah. You can find our most up to date list of locations here.

Strong, powerful Grandmothers

I fell in love with this necklace and the legend, shortly after my sister lost her husband. I got one for myself and am my sisters to remind them of what amazing strong women they were. When I receive the necklace, I ordered three more for my close friends to remind them what amazing, strong women they were, and I loved sharing my Cherokee heritage with them.

I love my Grandmother Turtle pendant! It is larger than I expected. Many items bought on the internet are smaller and less beautiful in person. This was quite the opposite. I wear it with pride and think of the story. A prized possesion! ❤
