Copper will make you happy.

Copper has been used in medicine for thousands of years—apparently since before the beginning of recorded history. Egyptians used copper drinking vessels to sterilize water. The Hippocrates Collection recommends the use of copper for varicose veins. Pliny used copper oxide with honey to treat intestinal worms. The Aztecs gargled with a mixture containing copper to treat sore throats.

Throughout the history of man, copper has been found useful for its curative powers—largely due to its antibacterial and antifungal properties.

And just think: you can use it to look beautiful at the same time!

I make loads of great copper jewelry - most of it limited edition, and all of it handmade by me. Aside from it's healing properties, there is something about the color of copper on any skintone, dark or light, that just makes it kind of GLOW.

I love to wear copper during the day when I'm trying to look a little lower key. I don't always want the flash of a conspicuous silver or gold earring. Copper is a wonderful option, and it is also something that not everyone is wearing yet, which will set you apart from the crowd a little - and that is always a good thing.
