Copper makes wonderful jewellery and provide a cheaper alternative sterling silver. Many people like to practise new wireworking techniques in copper first before trying them out on more expensive wires. But I think copper jewellery is deserving in its own right too - it is a really beautiful metal. Try mixing our copper beads and findings with the colourful anodized Niobium!
Most of these findings beads have been oxidized and buffed for an 'antiqued' finish, you can clean them with a quick buff or a light wipe with some white vinegar. To brighten them and completely remove the oxidized antiquing, soak them in white vinegar for a few minutes, then rinse and dry. This is especially effective on the headpins.
