Friday December 4, jewelry made from the old Maine State House copper dome, will be available on Etsy, and in our store in Bangor.

The Maine State House copper
dome becomes
wearable art

After over 100 years The Maine State House copper dome needed to be replaced. It was installed in 1909-1910 and replaced by new copper in 2014. But the old copper will live on.
It is now being made into jewelry and accessories by the three owners at Maine Jewelry & Art in Bangor.
Over the years the copper developed a beautiful sage green patina, and the artists are taking care to preserve the patina as they make the jewelry pieces.
The Maine State House Copper Dome Collection will be available both at the store Downtown Bangor, and online on the gallery's Etsy store.
By creating pieces of adornment and accessories, the gallery hopes to be able to offer people a little piece of home, and history will live on.
