No Sales, No Gimmicks. Just great prices.

Bronze is made primarily of copper with about 1/3 tin. I have decided to include bronze in my nickel free alloys that I use for secondary components. It has a fabulous golden sheen to it. To keep the polish, you may periodically use a solution of baking soda and lemon juice, described here.

The earwires are made of niobium, of course, which is allergy safe for virtually everyone, and will not tarnish or corrode. For the…
