WORKING WITH COPPER
by: Trish

Most of the copper components (but not all) that I have bought already have a coating on them that helps prevent tarnish and rub off.

Read the label if buying package goods, or ask if buying from a bead store or online.
I've found the easiest way to clean copper up is swishing around in vinegar and salt, then rinsing thoroughly.

Hope this helps!

COPPER JEWELRY
by: Ramblin44

My husband has been using real copper piping to make hoop earrings, and then he sprays it with a thin coating of Jewelry glue that he mixes, to give it shine and keep it from tarnishing.

It works great! I have had my hoops for about 3 months now, and no problems!

Jewelry glue and water for the mix, 1 to 2 parts.

PS make sure you let it dry before wearing.
