BRONZE is an alloy: CDA #521 (92% Cu/8% Sn).
Weight - Heavy.
To prevent tarnish of your Bronze jewelry: Bronze is an alloy of Copper & Tin, so jewelry made of Bronze will eventually oxidize (tarnish) - you can prevent this by storing in an air-tight zip lock bag after use and thoroughly dried. A little lemon juice can be used to clean the piece and then stored in an air-tight container.
Casting is an age old method of creating a design in wax or other material and having this cast. . Casting a piece involves a lot of time and patience contrary to what is commonly believed to be an easy way of mass producing an item. The advantage is that the same design can be reproduced a limited number of times. I have created the original using sheet copper and then had a mold created. The next step was to have this cast. At this stage multiple pieces are cast at the same time(around 4 at a time) The Lilies can be cast in Silver also upon request.
