    We have all seen sterling silver. It’s used in everything from rings, chains and bracelets to forks, spoons, fish knives and tea sets.

    Sterling carries a familiar “.925“ mark to show that it contains at least 92.5% pure silver in the composition.

    Is there a higher quality silver than that?

    Yes. It’s called “fine silver”, contains 99.5% pure silver, and has a beautiful finish.

    In the mountains of northern Thailand, a Karen Hill Tribe village creates original tribal and naturalistic pieces with incredible skill using fine silver. Every aspect of their work is hand made — even the chisels and tools used to texture the pieces. A Thai charity has dedicated support to preserve the traditions of these craftsman, ensuring their economic survival, personal safety, and education for their children. This revitalized traditional silver crafting and replaced poppy cultivation as the primary financial support. Courtesy of the internet, their wares are now available to jewelers around the world.

    Since it is nearly pure silver, fine silver is softer than sterling and has a lovely, soft glow not found with sterling. To maintain this lovely sheen, clean this silver with fresh-squeezed, sweet smelling lime juice or use a quality silver polish. The instant dip actually allows even sterling silver to tarnish more quickly.

    Gemstone “power bracelets” have joined acupuncture, chakra meditations, color therapy, and Feng Shui as people seek alternative treatments for our 21st century ailments. The chip bead bracelets strung on elastic are common in boutiques, stores, and malls across the world. 

    Bejeweled Lion feels these gemstones should be shown more respect. We work with them daily and do feel the special energies in many of the stones that pass through our hands. So we began Elementals, a special line of jewelry specifically designed to enhance the properties of gemstones.

    Items in the Elementals collection are very different from the baubles flooding the markets. Ours designs are made with the same quality materials and attention to detail that is found in each Bejeweled Lion design. Elementals introduces quality gemstones, fine workmanship, and elegance to energy jewelry. Our bracelets, personalized amulets, and decorative accents are created with respect and designed to improve the flow of energy—Feng Shui—in your environment.

    Each Elementals creation includes a card with a brief description of the materials used and their meanings.

    We love to create special pieces for people! Even if it’s just wire wrapping that pretty shell you found on your vacation or some unusual unidentifiable object you found in years ago in your grandmother’s attic, it means something to you. If it is special to you, it is special to us. Why leave it in a box or on a shelf gathering dust if we can turn it into something wearable without damaging your treasure?

    That doesn’t mean we don’t make new treasures with pearls, gemstones, and precious metals. But it’s much more enjoyable to make new jewelry when we know it is designed especially for someone and will be treasured because it was a gift from you. It won’t cost you a fortune, but it will make someone special feel priceless.

    Elementals, a special selection of Bejeweled Lion pieces designed to make use of gemstone energies.

    Custom designs are not just for individuals. Bejeweled Lion can create promotional and gift items for small businesses that are far more memorable than another cheap plastic pen.

    Non-profit organizations, especially smaller ones, often have trouble finding cause-related items at affordable rates. Bejeweled Lion can create custom designs that will not only remind their owners of the cause but be attractive and wearable as well.

    Custom creation for Bejeweled Lion client

    We also work with individuals who know exactly what they want but cannot find it anywhere—at least at a reasonable price! We understand people who want something “exactly this long” or “that isn’t too tight for my wrist”. Bejeweled Lion can create the piece you want.
