Eye Candy: Focus on Copper

Copper is said to combat lethargy, passivity, restlessness, and excitability. Some believe that it stimulates initiative, optimism, diplomacy and independence. When worn, it is supposed to be a bestower of good, bringing benefit to its wearer; copper can be used to enhance and stabilize intuition, sexuality, desire and vitality. In addition, copper is said to allow the wearer to recognize and tear down barriers.

Regardless of whether or not you believe in the metaphysical properties of copper, it's warm, earthy, fun and perfect for jewelry that segues from day into night. Less expensive than gold and silver, copper won't break the bank. Go ahead; indulge yourself! Click on any photo to learn more about the item pictured.
