Element 29

A Copper Wire Wrapped Bangle Bracelet

Copper: Element symbol - CU
Element number - 29

Copper is a very important metal that has been used for over 5000 years. It is very malleable, and is a good conductor of heat and electricity second only to silver in electrical conductivity. Its alloys are brass and bronze; Monel and gunmetal also have copper in them. Large copper ore deposits are found in the United States, Canada, Chile, Peru, Zaire, and Zambia. (Did you know that you were going to get a science and geography lesson today?)

This handsome copper bangle bracelet has lots twists and turns with the main focal point being an awesome ceramic copper bead! There are also two amber glass beads that coordinate perfectly with the copper wire! It is a 7-3/4 inch bracelet that will fit comfortably on a 6-1/2 to 7-1/2 inch wrist. The hook closure is easy to open and close with just one hand and is sturdy enough to keep it secure on your wrist!

The Element 29 bracelet is made with natural copper wire, not a coated craft wire, so it will patina nicely over time! If you prefer your copper to remain bright, just pour a little Worcestershire sauce over it, rinse with water and dry with a soft cloth. Thank you for looking!
