Just a Random Update

Some weeks – I get to present you with a nice, tidy, themed update. Entire product lines of this or that.

And some weeks – it’s just random.

This is one of those weeks.

First up – Random nuggets  of Michigan native copper. Michigan’s Keweenaw Peninsula produced the purest native – straight out of the ground – copper ever discovered. Copper is one of the few metals that can be found in veins as relatively pure metal.

Long known and used by the indigenous peoples for both tools and for decorative uses, settlers began much more concentrated mining processes, and “Lake Copper” became the standard by which refined copper was compared.

You get a selection of random pieces of mined native copper – really random, in random shapes. You get about 60 grams or a little more. The photos are representative of 60 grams. The number of pieces and sizes will vary – from 20 to 40 mm. Some will be thin and you can punch a hole though with a metal punch,some will be thicker and more dimensional. Some have holes. Some do not. Some have some verdigris – some do not. It will be … random. 😉

If that is a little too random for you – or maybe you need some thing random to go with it, we have these flat, random shaped beads – these have actual, deliberate holes in them. They are a mix of bronze and copper.

Not quite so random, in that they are all the same design, but still – very organic looking.

Apropos of absolutely nothing at all – these big noodly loopy bails. With an inside diameter of 9.5mm, you can drive a truck through them. Or string anything you want, practically.
