Pewter jewelry is a beautiful form of jewelry. Good quality pewter contains over 90% tin and contains no lead content. All of our jewelry is hand-cast and artisan-prepared for you. We use surgical steel pins and hardware for earrings and pins. Pewter jewelry can be polished to a fantastic shine or left to show the original color of the workings, both methods allow for two very different designs.
Most items of jewelry can be made from pewter. Below, you can find some fantastic examples of these pewter jewelry items.
