Sergio Lub Bracelets

METAL CONTENT:
All our designs are handcrafted the old fashioned way, starting from solid metal wires. We use no plating, no casting and no machine stamping, all industrial techniques that save time, but compromise meaning.

- The Red metal is 99.99% Pure Copper, lead free, the purest available. Copper is one of the friendliest elements, it combines with many others. To find copper this pure in nature is many times more difficult than finding pure gold.

- The Yellow metal is Jeweler's Brass, an alloy of 85% pure copper and 15% pure zinc, both essential minerals worn since prehistoric times by many non related cultures around the world. Science has already proven that copper is absorbed through the skin, so our bracelets can now be considered a time release source of needed minerals.

- The White metal is German Silver, an alloy of 65% pure copper plus zinc, nickel and silver. Also used to make white gold. It is harder than Sterling and it got its name because, to have sharper knives, it was first used in the Kaiser's silverware.


How are Handcrafted (annealed) Bracelets different than Machine Made?

A stamping machine applies many tons of pressure on a sheet of copper to stamp a desired shape, intimately deforming the microscopic crystal lattice of the metal, making it rigid and brittle, more “rock like”.

A craftsperson making the same pattern by hand will gradually work the copper to its final shape, taking the time to heat the metal repeatedly so the vibrating molecules can realign themselves and relieve the stress produced by the changes made. This carefully executed heating process is called “annealing”. The final result may look alike without a microscope, but it feels much different. Please adjust our bracelets on your wrist. Feel the difference for yourself!
