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.

Telico Pearl Necklace.

I love, love love this necklace. the chain if feels fragile. I purchased this necklace to match the earrings i had purchased earlier.

Hi Rebecca,
Thie chain is delicate.
But it holds up well.
Some of our customers wear this daily.
We do offer other chains if you would prefer something heavier.
They do cost more.
Please contact us and we can arrange something for you.

Lovely pearl pendant, good price

The blister pearl pendant was a great size, natural and delicate, but large enough to show up layered with other pieces, I wear it with
the matching earrings, a bit smaller, just right!
