Copper Jump Rings

100% Copper Rings   Copper is a fabulous product to work in.  Colour can vary from the rosy pink of freshly cleaned copper to a deeper red and onto a dark brown.  Although copper can tarnish quickly it is easily kept clean by placing it into a vinegar/water mixture for approx 30 second and rinsed under cleaned running water.

The wire used to make these rings is a Hard Temper wire but reacts similar to half hard sterling.

Cleaning Copper Rings

Cooper is known to tarnish very fast. Clean up is fairly easy by using a vinegar/water/salt dip for a few seconds, rinse and let dry.
