    These are scrumptious! I love their color! Great wire wraps too. Question, what do you seal the wire with after the LOS?

    Thanks so much everyone! Took these out for a test drive last night and received lots of compliments on them. Love the feedback.

    Regarding sealing the wire. I do not with this dark oxidized copper. I’ve had pieces for a long time and they stay this gorgeous dark steel color just fine, with no skin irritations. If someone does have problems with copper though, I’d definitely treat the ear wires with Renaissance Wax or other sealant.
