The Charismatic Color of Copper - Wonderful Handmade Wednesday on Indiemade



The first recorded use of copper as a color name in English was in 1594.  It is a charismatic reddish brown color that resembles the color of polished copper.  According to Wikipedia, however, there are about 25 different shades of “copper,” from a verdigris green (copper green) to a dark brown (dark copper).  It is a trendy color, found in everything from jewelry to clothing to household decoration and accents.  Beautiful with shades of green and blue (mint, teals, turquoise, navy), it actually works well with almost any color as this article in Lushome shows:  30 Modern Interior Designs.


Because the color of copper is so popular, I decided that this week’s Wonderful Handmade Wednesday would focus on it.  I searched through the shops of Indiemade artist friends and found a plethora of coppery goodness in many, many shades.  If anything catches your eye, please be sure to click the photo or the live descriptive link to be taken to the item for more information and pictures.  I hope you enjoy these coppery handmade beauties.

Copper has become my "go to" metal! It goes so well with stones, glass and earthenware. Thanks so much for including my earrings with these lovely selections.
