Copper Reflections was created in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada in 1985 by two brothers. They started making jewelry from copper and brass using simple tools. They sold their first creations at a street stand in Gastown, the historic part of Vancouver. They started participating in arts and crafts shows in British Columbia and Alberta. At the beginning, the jewelry that these two brothers were creating by using a simple technique of shaping and texturing metals by hammering and embossing. After they moved to Ontario, to make their jewelry, they started developing newer techniques that were unique to them.
They came up with a special tool that produce an engraving effect that was very unusual. This engraving technique made Copper Reflections jewelry very distinctive. The company started adding to wholesale gift shows in Canada and the United States in early 1990's. They were inspired by wildlife, animal, Native and nature and they reflected these on their jewelry designs. A man from Missouri also taught them how to do bright cut. When they joined their engraving with the bright cut their jewelry looked more luxurious. Their product started selling throughout Canada and the United States mostly to the gift stores and handmade galleries in tourist areas. The newest technique that the developed enable them to handcraft colorful designs. Copper Reflections is now collaborating with the renowned American artist, Lynn Bean.
