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 . . .

About Bell Trading Post

Bell Trading Post was founded in Albuquerque, New Mexico in 1932 by Jack Michelson and his wife Mildred. They sold sterling silver, nickel silver, gold and copper southwest style jewelry at various tourist locations in the United States. Bell Trading Post got its name from Jack's wife, whose maiden name was Bell. Their main competitor was The Maisel Company until Maisel's closed in 1968. In 1969, Bell Trading Post and partners became Sunbell, the name which was then used on the jewelry. Sunbell continued to offer jewelry items as well as giftware and moccasins until the late 1980s. Over the years numerous hallmarks were used on items sold by Bell Trading Post and Sunbell. The hallmarks typically included the image of a bell or that of an arrow sign post with a bell sign hanging from it. Shown here are just a few of Bell Trading Post's and Sunbell's hallmarks.
