Our   Beautiful Copper jewelry comes from our resident jewelry maker here at Jonquil Junction.
 A bit about the process:
Richard already had  years of experience with  precise woodworking  and working with the springs, gears, and  metals in his clock-making business.  When  a customer asked him to make a copper chain for a pocket watch, he used his knowledge of "work hardening" metal  to design and craft a chain for the watch.  That experience  soon led to a  line of copper jewelry, with a focus on earrings. He designs each piece in his head first then makes an individual ‘jig’ to bend and hammer the piece into the shape he desires. This time consuming process results in a unique and beautiful piece that you will never see in a mass-produced jewelry store.
All parts of his earrings, except the ear-wire, are handmade and hammered, from the hammered body of  the earring right down to each individual , intricate and  tiny piece . 
He makes many designs, but only a few of each, and some designs are not repeated.
All Jewelry  is clear-coated to prevent tarnish.
