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, oxygen and 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. 

We typically notice this happening on hot days when when we are working outside and sweating. What can you do when this happens? Luckily the green washes off easily with soap and water. You can also coat your copper with clear fingernail polish and this will keep the green away. Of course some of our customers see the green as proof the copper is working.


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.

Culturally Significant Custom Gorget

Words are inadequate to describe the significance this gorget immediately meant to my family. Greg is Knowledgeable, helpful, and patient. His artistic and creative skills are obvious upon the first glimpses of the gorget. I knew that my wife and I wanted to get something special for our daughter to recognize her culture, her academic accomplishments, and her future. I had a vague idea what I wanted. I didn't know what it was. I just knew it was not on the shelf of stores. Greg's input helped me realize that it my hopes were possible. This gift for my daughter is a unique piece of cultural jewelry that might possibly be handed down to her daughter or granddaughter someday. I am truly grateful to have been able to gain the opportunity to talk with Greg. I have already purchase another similar item for my wife. Now, she and our daught have similar but different gorgets. Wado/MVTO/Ho-Wee Cherokee Copper! I will be purchasing items from you again.
