Love this chain! It's attractive and well priced. Want to use for a necklace but so far have cut a tiny section of an oval and bead & added a bead to the end to create lovely dangle earrings! The style of the chain makes it look complete.

Questions and Answers

Q: I love this chain, but am afraid it will turn my neck green. Is there a product I could put on the chain to keep this from happening?
Asked by: Tracy - 3/16/2015
A: I too have this problem with about every metal I wear. It is a natural process of the metal oxidizing. It is also more prevalent in those with high acidic skin, such as me. I searched online and found some good suggestions from a great blog I like; The Beading Gem, Pearl is Awesome. This is what she suggests:
There are 3 ways to reduce this problem:

1. Don't wear copper jewelry all the time. Remove it and store it in a zip lock bag to reduce the tarnishing effect. It also helps to keep bright copper shiny i.e. remove any beginning oxidation by cleaning it regularly. Ketchup, vinegar or lemon juice works! See post below.
2. Use renaissance wax to protect the jewelry. This though is not a permanent solution.
3. Deliberately patina your pieces for the vintage look ie add a layer of oxidized material. The patina layer will thus act as a barrier between the copper and your skin. Liver of sulfur is the most efficient way although there are other methods. Again not a permanent solution as the patina eventually rubs off with use. Some artisans create gorgeous patinas and they wax coat the pieces to protect the patinas.
