The stone is natural and unpolished. The scientific and intricate process used to add layers of lovely copper is called electroforming. This process can be unpredictable and can take hours to days to complete just one wearable. There may be small perfect imperfections in the copper and it may darken over time. Each piece has been cleansed and sealed with you in mind.
MergingMetals creates unique and unconventional wearables, each lovingly handcrafted and made with purpose through the process of electroforming. First they hand paint any area they want to become copper with a conductive paint. The piece goes into a copper sulfate, sulfuric acid solution along with copper bars. They hook the item up to electricity and over 24 to 72 hours the copper from the bars is transferred anywhere that was painted. Lastly they hand patina, polish, and apply a metal sealant to each item. From start to finish each piece takes 4 to 6 days to complete. A lot of love goes into each and every piece they create.
