Copper is a very popular metal of choice for those lucky enough to be able to wear this color. So let's have a look at some beautiful handmade examples we could use in our jewelry making. Those with patinas are stunning!

The above drop dead gorgeous electroformed copper button with a purple Mojave turquoise is on the large side at 33 x 24mm so it will be best as a clasp button or even a pendant or bracelet focal. The gemstone comes from the Kingman mine in Arizona and was cabbed by Jeff Hansen of Stone Shaper Design. It's available from jewelry artist, Gail Pate's SupplyYourSoul.
Also from Gail are these lovely 1 inch copper electroformed clay ink patina earring charms. Don't they have a rustic charm about them?

This hand forged, stamped, soldered and oxidized copper clasp with hook is beautiful. Available from Carole Torres, the French metalsmith behind Brumedeterre. 

These handmade deeply oxidized connectors from Washington based Suzanne of BarbedandTwisted are so unusual. She has a sense of humor as she described the connectors as being stuck together "with pixie dust and unicorn kisses!"

These hand cut and hand formed copper leaves are gorgeous in the original copper color.  They are available with and without holes from Washington based mother and daughter team, Paula and Samii of QuailRunFindings. They can be used as is, or fire painted, oxidized or enameled. 

I've featured the gorgeous etched copper components by Beverly of CopperinTheBuff's designs before.  These cranberry colored mandalas are stunning. You really have to explore her shop to see her wonderful collection.
