Electroforming is the intricate process of using electricity to "grow" copper on to another medium. During this phase the copper will grow as it pleases giving each piece its own unique textures and character. Each piece requires 24+ hours to fully form and no two pieces will ever form the same.
As Copper is a conductor of heat and electricity, it is also considered a conductor of one’s spiritual energy, moving it back and forth between people, auras, crystals, and the spirit world. Said to be able to amplify one’s thoughts, sending and receiving psychic communication.
