As reported by Worth Global Style Network (WGSN), the leading online trend-analysis and research service, "Copper is an apt material for the current consumer mood as it offers warmth and coziness but also brings an electric jolt of energy into design."
Copper's recyclability and natural tarnishing provides sustainable design and gives the wearer a feeling the piece has been unearthed from ages past. Prized by artisans for its resilience and flexibility, copper is beautiful in both its bright and oxidized forms, making it a natural choice for jewelry designs. And the more distressed the better--surfaces are disrupted, beaten, hammered and uneven, creating an artistic appeal. Offering an affordable alternative to precious metals, copper is making an appearance in high-end jewelry collections, carrying connotations of luxury and prestige.
