A story about copper. My family has a cabin in Michigan’s Keweenaw Peninsula. 100 years ago, this area of Michigan was home to the world’s largest copper mines. It’s a rich history and the people there are quite proud of it. You can find copper jewelry and knickknacks in every gift shop. Affordable and lovely, I always bought a piece of copper jewelry as a souvenir. While in high school, talking to a friend, I said, “some people like silver, some people like gold, but I like copper.” Though I now giggle at my 15-year-old self too, I had no idea why a teacher’s aide who overheard me started laughing. But, it’s still true. I still love copper and think this red metal makes a lovely addition to all kinds of jewelry, either in combination with other metals or on its own.
