Let them know that you love them in Cherokee with a copper cuff from Cherokee Copper.

This Cuff says I LOVE YOU in the Cherokee Syllabary. 

To say I love you in Cherokee means so much more. 

Gvgeyu (guh-gay-you) not easily translated to English. It means more than just I love you. It really means I care for you, that I give my life for you. I willingly surrender my happiness for yours, that you will eat if I do not, that you will be safe even if I must put myself in danger, that I will protect you with every breath

3/8" Louella Copper Cuff

The cuff is 6" long and open in the back so it will fit most wrists.  Once you pace it on squeeze the sides to close the back for a more secure fit.

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.

The cuff was nice, but the site offered a special discount which was not applied on checkout; The price was double what I had been led to believe it would be. I emailed them about this and got no response.

Hi Patty,
Thanks for the review.
We do offer $10 off your order over $40. I wish we could take $10 off every order but as a small Cherokee family business we would not be able to stay in business if we did that. Our goal is to share Cherokee Culture. and we do that through jewelry. We simply can not give a customer 30% off an order and stay in businees. We hope you understand. Wado,
Lisa Co-founder Cherokee Copper
