All of our gorgets are made by hand here in our home studio by Cherokee Artists Greg Stice. Greg has been crafting in copper since 2012
We began making gorgets at the request of our customers.
Our design process is easy. Our Small Custom Gorgets start at $195.
This includes materials and design time.
Greg will work with you to create a design that embodies your ideas.
You will have final apporval on the design before he begins to work on the gorget and he will send you photos along the wya.
Browse the pictures below for a peek of some of our past designs. Let us make something special for you today.
This is a made to order item. Custom gorgets take a little more time than our in stock items. The current turn around time for Custom Gorgets is 2-4 weeks.

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.
