Why Copper

Copper is the perfect choice for creating a gift that balances rustic charm with contemporary flair. This rosy-hued metal has rapidly become a popular decorative metal for its excellent workability and warm aesthetic appearance. Copper is a soft, malleable and ductile metal that can be easily shaped and readily joined by brazing or soldering. Its other notable properties include high thermal and electrical conductivity and corrosion resistance. Copper can be polished regularly to keep its rosy gold color or allowed to oxidize and develop a patina of a burnt brown highlighted with turquoise hues. There are many techniques for finishing copper, making it an adaptive material to fit any look you like. Its versatility makes this lustrous metal sought after by artists, jewelers, architects, and interior designers alike. Copper’s distinctive and sophisticated look will please even the pickiest of gift receivers and its resistance to tarnishing will keep your gifts beautiful for a long time.
