Bronze is an alloy of copper and tin, and jewelry made of it will naturally tarnish with time. The tarnish is a greenish layer of copper oxide formed when bronze comes into contact with oxygen and is called patina. This Patina can be removed and Bronze can last for decades if cared for. To clean your bronze simply use warm water, soap and a sponge or a toothbrush for hard to reach places. To remove the Patina on your bronze jewelry, start by washing it with warm water to remove any dirt, and then dry the piece. Take a small bowl, and put 2-3 tablespoons of baking soda in it. Pour a little lemon juice, and mix it with the soda until you make a paste. Rub the paste onto your bronze jewelry, and keep rubbing until the item is clean; you can use a toothbrush or a cloth. Then leave the item with the paste on for about half an hour before rinsing the jewelry and drying it with a cloth.
