Featuring: Stolen Sceptre Fine Jewelry

Recently I met with Chris Garrett, the founder and creative genius behind Stolen Sceptre Fine Jewelry. LIsten to his description of these very special pieces and the meaning behind them.

This Fine Jewelry is hand made primarily in the United States, applying old world techniques to vintage rare materials and recycled precious metals.  Pieces are often one of a kinds, unlike anything else. The process is "small batch," never mass merchandised.  If you appreciate the special look that wear and time create, you will love these products.  

Some surface scratches are intentionally present.  Many items are even tumbled and burnished to produce this effect.  Buy, cherish and appreciate these creations for their unique character.  His mantra is to choose something unique and follow a different path...

The Meaning behind the phrase,  Stolen Sceptre

Stolen Sceptre can mean different things to each wearer.  In general, it refers to something very special which was lost or taken, something life altering.  It could mean the loss of a physical thing (an object, a fortune, a beloved friend, a cherished lover), or of intangibles, things we understand but others may not.  Perhaps it involves an obstacle... an illness, sobriety or a goal yet to be completed.

Great loss can be very sad, but it can also serve to strengthen our spirits, one of life's most rewarding triumphs.  Wearing a token from the Stolen Sceptre Fine Jewelry collection is a remembrance of where you, the wearer, have been and how far you have come.  It is a personal celebration, a reward.  Though it can be given to you or by you,  it is an intimate token, amulet or charm to remind each of us of the great power drawn from perseverance.

Hi Karena,
I have to agree with Loi :)
I love the chain like bracelet and the pendant with rope chain. The meaning behind the art is a bit dark and one wearing it may also feel this darkness. The jewelry and the jeweler gives new meaning to the (MOOD RING) would you not agree? :)

Wonderful history behind the art of these creations.

Always inspiring here with you ...
You keep our minds in a creative place.

Beautiful health your way.
