This last weekend I bought a shoe box of an odd lot of material from
an estate of a rockhound. In it I found a finished pendant with a
cab of petrified wood. I believe the bezel was SS but did not polish
it yet to see. The copper was really polished nicely and had a very
nice (lovely) look. I know I have seen copper bracelets but usually
not polished to a bright finish. Is there much jewelry that uses
copper today? If not (other than the material may not be expensive
to buy) why not?
