Beautiful, handmade in the USA using authentic vintage stones, let us tell you the story about our Liztech Jewelry. Liztech Jewelry (originally Elizabethan Technologies) is made using mirrored chrome. The mirrored chrome contains three different elements – polyethylene, aluminum and an electroplated mirror surface. Each piece is wire wrapped and beaded with a coated cable wire. The pieces are all adorned using vintage stones, metal findings, parts, bits and anodized aluminum.
The base of all Liztech Jewelry is a mirror substitute typically found in building hotel lobbies- This mirror is unlike any other jewelry making material- it will never break, tarnish, crack or shatter.
How is this bracelet made? This jewelry is all handmade in an artist studio in the USA. Each piece of mirror is hand-cut using a scroll saw. The edges are then sandblasted and burnished. The piece then gets drilled and the stones are all set in there bezels. The pieces are then wire wrapped and beaded. Every piece of jewelry then gets steam cleaned, signed and dated. Just turn yours over to see the year it was created!!!
