Vintage Style Pewter Castings from the 1928 Jewelry Company
Jewelry is a brand that strikes a sentimental chord with many. Beloved and widely collected for over 50 years, it is recognized all around the world for its intricate detail and quality without equal. Everything about is timeless and elegant.
For many years, I longed to know more about Jewelry Company and
"that guy who started a big jewelry line in his apartment". Theirs is a story that will resonate with many a jewelry
designer who is working hard to make it happen.The enduring success of
this company proves that ideas can bear fruit and that dreams can come true.
Like many costume jewelry companies of their stature, has never released to the public any of the custom-cast pieces and parts created for use in their jewelry. Never have they allowed anyone to come in and curate a components/findings line that had their brand on it.
Via many email discussions, phone calls and visits, we decided that it was time to reach out to artisan designers and jewelry makers like YOU. Be prepared for a real treat! This line consists of lead-free pewter castings made from their vast archive of antique molds. Some molds are the very same ones used to make their historic, highly collected pieces. The cherry on top is that they come to you in my proprietary specialty finishes.
I've chosen each and every casting in this line with *you* in mind! New findings will be introduced frequently featuring antique French and European designs. There will also be new ideas developed only for B'sue by .
All of the pieces have nickel-free artisan finishes and are lead-free. You will discover that they are far and away the best and most unique cast pewter findings you will source, anywhere.
This line is completely made in the USA.
A dream is just a dream....until you do the work and make it reality. Hopefully these wonderful castings will inspire you and take you to the next level in your journey. Creating this line has been the highlight of my creative life. I am humbled, honored and grateful for the task.
Now...I get to introduce it to you!
