dirty jewelry? no way!

Spent hours making beautiful earrings and necklaces, only to have it yellowy-grey and dingy after a few months?

Dirty jewelry! What causes it and what to do!

Very simply, our skin, moisturizers, make-up, chemicals, smoke, foods, and air can cause our jewelry to turn dark and dirty (see below).

What do we do at TBG? Polish it with a non-toxic cloth/pad, spray it with a non-toxic, non-acidic enzyme, or throw it in the tumbler.

Our favorite is the tumbler cause we can LOAD it up with beads and finished jewelry, turn it on, walk away and come back to it looking awesome! It uses stainless steel shot (jason's homemade mix) and a little bit of soap, and you're green lit to go!

Bring in something tarnished, yellowed or just in need, and we can guide you to products that will help, and if there's time, we may even clean it for you!

jason recently ordered a limited amount of tumblers, and we have a handful left in stock. email for more info!

three cheers for clean jewelry!

love making the jewelries!

my friend mi'ilani brought her friend akiko to the store, so i did a mini cupcake wellness for her! i did a reading, a gemstone consult and made these pretty earrings (that we did a quick blessing and set our intentions on)! Love it!!

it's a dream come true for me, to have a bead store AND use all my skills and inspiration to design jewelry that is meaningful and carries the vibration of love and positive energy for that specific person!

i wish i could do this every day! in fact, i will make myself a bracelet for that VERY wish! let you know how it goes...

luv ya! jamie
