Intricately hand-woven antique copper men's bracelet with hook clasp. Fern style pattern weave.
Copper has been known for centuries and in many cultures to have healing properties. Because of its electrical properties, some people believe it has an energizing quality of its own that can be absorbed through wearing it. That same energy is believed to improve flexibility, mobility, and the wearer's luck.
Copper can change color due to a chemical reaction with the air and/or skin. There is a long-standing belief that some individuals are allergic to copper, but this is actually very rare. Keeping your bracelet clean and dry will help prevent any skin discoloration. The bracelet has been coated and sealed in jewelry wax to help preserve the look, but this will wear away eventually. Avoid applying anything but jewelry wax to seal your bracelet (despite rumors, nail polish should be avoided).
A polishing cloth is enclosed with the piece in a damask box suitable for gifting, should you want to brighten your bracelet. This bracelet is approximately 8.5".
