Sergio Lub has been designing and creating copper magnetic bracelets, classic copper bracelets, brass, and silver bracelets in Northern California since 1969. All Sergio Lub designs are handcrafted the old fashioned way, starting from solid metal wires. Sergio uses no plating, no casting and no machine stamping, all industrial techniques that save time, but compromise quality. The magnets are inlaid on the inside at each end, they are made of rare earth neodymium and have a permanent charge of 4,000 to 5,600 gauss per bracelet. Sergio's craftsmanship is guaranteed and all Sergio Lub jewelry is proudly stamped Handmade in America. Many of his designs are inspired by ancient traditions and their stories accompany each bracelet.
Sergio uses the finest metals available to create his designs. The copper, this red metal is Pure Copper. It is free of lead, mercury or other contaminants that are common in industrial grade copper wires. Copper is one of the friendliest elements as it combines with many others. To find copper this pure in nature is far more difficult than finding pure gold. Science has already proven that copper is essential for our health and is absorbed through the skin, so besides their beauty, our bracelets can also be considered a time-release source of an essential mineral.
Sergio's yellow metal is Jeweler's Brass, also known as new gold because of its color and for not tarnishing with water. Jewelers brass is an alloy of 85% pure copper and pure zinc, both essential minerals, meaning that our bodies must have them in order to remain healthy. Brass and copper have been worn by many different cultures since prehistoric times.
Sergio Lubs white metal is German Silver, an alloy of 65% copper plus zinc, nickel and silver often used in making white gold. German silver is harder than sterling silver, it got its name from being used first in the German Kaisers silverware.
Multimetals or married metals, is a technique of soldering several metals in a piece of jewelry, you can see this displayed in many of Sergio's custom designs. It requires superior skill knowing how to read the torches flame and the different temperatures of each metal by their glow, so they will all be receptive to the silver solder at the same time. Every piece you see involving multimetals indicates a handcrafted product, this is because no mass produced process has been found yet to replace the care and skill of a jeweler and as stated earlier, all Sergio Lubs bracelets are handmade.
