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.
MergingMetals creates unique and unconventional wearables, each lovingly handcrafted and made with purpose. 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.
