Copper jewelry first became popular in the 1950's. Even though it's popularity waned, it has been a mainstay in handcrafted jewelry and arts.
Copper is said to have many healing properties, such as improving circulation, increasing energy, detoxification of the body, and helping with arthritis.
Copper is one of the oldest metals known to man, dating back over 10,000 years. The history of wire wrapped jewelry dates back centuries to 1445 BC. Researchers have found elements of wire jewelry in ancient pharaohs tombs and pyramids in Egypt.
