Thank you for taking the time to consider this sentimental keepsake bracelet and visit my shop, Copperelegy! Please carefully review the description, sizing, and process listed below. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to message me.
Determine your size (see below).* Once an order is submitted, I will send you an email with my studio address to ship the lock of hair. A minimum of 1/8″ thickness x 5″ length of hair is needed. If you’d like to include hair from more than one person, I can work with smaller pieces as long as one of them follows the guidelines above. Once received, I will ever-so-carefully, twist it and run it through the copper. No treatment is applied to the hair as it will stand the test of time on its own. The total process takes between 7-10 days to complete.
To determine your size; touch your thumb to the middle of your pinkie finger. Measure around the widest part of your hand. Keep in mind the silk provides a tiny bit of stretch so if you are in between I’d recommend the size down. See last image for position.

*Black Oxidation is not permanent. It will fade over time and blend into the natural patina of the copper.
*Copper will patina into a rich red-bronze color over time. The wax finish will slow this process, but will not prevent it. To return to the original luster, polish with a sunshine cloth, and reapply a small amount of wax with a soft cloth.
*Although these bracelets are cuff-like in appearance, they are not adjustable. Do not bend or the copper could permanently kink.
*Sizing is only a recommendation. If you are unsure, please test for comfort with a strip of paper at the proper length.
