Elizabeth Sarah prides herself on being an artist of fine, handmade jewelry that specializes in techniques which require precision and attention to detail.
She believes in quality over quantity as a way of preserving her craft and keeping her designs original and ever-changing.
Her collections are produced in limited quantities. Every piece made in her in-home studio is either one of a kind or made in small batches of at most ten pieces at a time.
While a few pieces may be replicated using the same "formula" or pattern, no two gemstones are alike and we never produce more than two to three of the same original design.
Elizabeth also limits her supply of gems as her inspirations behind each piece depend on her seasonal travels. She typically designs each necklace with the thought of it to be a representation of nature or memories of far away places.
The same concept of producing high quality necklaces also goes into our small batch collections. For example, our best selling worldwide design happens to be our electroplated shark tooth necklaces. While keeping up with the demand for this product, we still keep a limited supply on hand, as the teeth must be in perfect condition to undergo the process of electroplating. Since the teeth are 100% natural and most are fossilized over hundreds of thousands of years, they are still fragile and must be handled with the same care of our precious gemstones.
While we use the same formula for chain, accenting gemstones and closure, each and every shark tooth varies in size, shape, color and texture, making every necklace one of a kind in its own way.
We even use teeth that come from a variety of shark species, as we find many teeth locally and love each and every ocean treasure for its unique qualities.
To keep the same consistency with our small batch collections, we also employ the same unique standards into our sea glass, crescent, druzy, arrowhead and Atocha coin necklaces. Elizabeth designs slight differences so that even if the pendants are similar, the chain and accenting gemstones differ so that no one has the exact same piece.
While producing mass quantities may be better for other businesses, our team feels that better care and customer service are achieved when things are kept on a smaller scale.
Every piece of jewelry, even before it is packaged in a hand stamped box and a bow, passes through Elizabeth and my own hands. If these pieces were to be mass produced in an outsourcing facility, they may not be made with the quality and care of the artist.
Elizabeth’s jewelry line is more than a representation of her craft and creativity- it encompasses her standards for how her products are designed and produced, and the care and customer service behind her brand.
