About Copper - Copper is a pure elemental metal, CU on the periodic table. It is reddish brown and is soft enough so that it is malleable which means you can shape and bend it fairly easily. Copper oxidizes and darkens when it comes in contact with the air in the environment. There are many who swear by the health benefits of wearing copper (copper bracelet manufacturers) while others have the opposite viewpoint. Read more about copper . . .
Celtic Weave - Interlace patterns have been used in the art and architecure of many cultures throughout the ages. Knot patterns were used in Roman floor mosiaics in the 3rd century, in early Christian manuscripts, medieval Russian and European book illustration, and in Islamic and Ethiopian artwork. Plaitwork (a woven, unbroken cord design) is most commonly associated with the Celtic culture, but it was also used extensively in England and was exported to Europe by Irish and Northumbrian monks. Today, this aspect of Celtic art is popularly thought of in terms of national identity and therefore specifically Irish, Scottish or Welsh.
