Copper Earrings – A Formidable Alternative to Traditional Jewelry Metals
If you are looking for unusual, statement jewelry then look no further than copper earrings. As one of the most recent entries into the jewelry world, copper is definitely a worthy alternative to more traditional metals such as gold and silver. The unique properties of copper make it a versatile material, full of character and life. This can be seen in the collections of artists such as John S. Brana who have personally pushed this amazing metal into the industry spotlight.
Copper Earrings – A Wide Selection of Shapes and Sizes
Looking at copper earrings, we can see that there are many types currently available. Everything from leaf-shaped designs to hammered chains of rings can be purchased and worn with a range of outfits on a variety of occasions. The sheer malleability of this amazing metal allows it to be molded into thousands of stunning shapes.
Patinated Copper Earrings – A Variety of Color and Textures
Besides this, copper has the unique property of being able to be patinated. By added substances such as vinegar or ammonia to the metal, different colors can be brought out, allowing for even more amazing designs. Jewelers such as John S. Brana use this technique to create pairs of copper earrings awash with different shades of green, blue and brown.
One more way to spice up a pair of copper earrings is to ensure that they are handmade. This metal is perfect for being shaped by hand and can be lovingly molded into a number of designs. This means that every piece is truly unique, allowing you to don a pair of earrings which exists nowhere else on the planet.
For those looking for an exciting alternative to the usual gold and silver jewelry, copper is definitely a stand-out contender! Its unique properties and the fact that it can be used to create thousands of different pairs of beautiful copper earrings all means that you can actually build up an entire jewelry collection solely using this amazing metal.
Before you purchase that next piece of jewelry for your collection, have you thought about copper and how it can uniquely enhance your appearance? With a natural, earthy tone, copper looks great with formal attire as well as more casual clothing. Handmade items, such as the chased copper hoop earrings or hammered copper ring necklace from John S. Brana, are great accessories which can be worn to work conferences or on a fun night out.
Copper – An Invaluable Metal
Copper has been used to make handmade jewelry for centuries. Ever since mankind learned to work metal, copper has been an invaluable material due to its malleability and ductility. Metalsmiths such as John S. Brana have been crafting this versatile metal into all sorts of jewelry, perfect for any occasion. Combining natural beauty with a rustic appearance, handmade copper jewelry has been popular over the ages for very good reason.
Copper Jewelry Variations
The flexible nature of copper allows it to be worked into a large variety of shapes and used in a number of jewelry designs. For example, the fold formed corrugated copper large disc earrings by John S. Brana are styled to look like golden autumn leaves and are a great addition to any collection. Of course, copper jewelry has many more shapes and sizes and can be found in bracelets, necklaces and scarf rings as well.
Affordable Copper Jewelry
Copper jewelry has the advantage of looking terrific in any location. While being versatile with any sort of clothing and occasion is definitely a great reason to purchase a set of copper pieces, it is not the only one. Copper is also one of the most affordable jewelry materials and ensures that anyone can purchase a stunning collection for a fraction of the price of gold or silver. Everyone deserves to look fantastic and copper jewelry gives you that chance.
While out searching for the next item for your jewelry collection, have a look at the wide range of bronze rings now available on the worldwide jewelry market. While gold and silver are still popular materials, bronze is a more cost effective alternative which can be worn in a large number of everyday situations. For these reasons, professional craftsmen such as John S. Brana have included bronze rings in their quality collections.
Rings made from bronze come in all shapes, sizes and prices. They are commonly found adorned with sparkling gemstones such as jade, quartz and amethyst, and are an attractive addition to any outfit. The rings themselves can also vary and be molded in a wide variety of designs such as the tree branch textures found in John S. Brana’s jewelry catalog. This unique form actually uses bronze’s natural look to create some stunning items each with their own individual personality.
Versatility of Bronze Rings
Another reason why bronze rings are so popular is that they can be worn in almost any situation. Imagine that you are in possession of an emerald cut citrine ring from John S. Brana. This glistening stone will look perfect sitting on your finger regardless of whether you are attending a workplace conference or a casual outdoor barbecue. The same can be said of other designs of bronze rings as well.
Affordable Bronze Rings
In addition to their versatility and beauty, bronze rings are also a very cost effective way to complement your wardrobe. Purchasing items made from gold, platinum or silver can be expensive and bronze is an affordable alternative which looks equally as amazing, especially when worn with the right outfit. If you are searching for a great addition to your jewelry collection, purchasing a bronze ring or two will be a decision which you definitely will not regret.
