Bronze Jump Rings

Bronze is a close in color to copper but a little less red. It is an alloy of copper and tine. It will tarnish and turn the color of a bronze sculpture or an old penny. It is a stronger metal than copper.

Bronze is very durable and has a nice weight to it. Bronze is not recommended for beginners because it is a hard metal and can be challenging to work with. But it is well worth the effort if you like the look of aged copper or of bronze sculptures.

Because Bronze contains copper, it develops a patina quickly and people who have a skin reaction to copper will likely to also react to bronze.

To clean, use any commercial jewelry cleaner that says it is safe for brass or copper – like Brasso.
