Pewter Jewelry at its Finest!

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.

HISTORY OF THE RAMPANT LION

The lion is a common charge in heraldry. It traditionally symbolizes bravery, valor, strength, and royalty, since it is regarded as the king of beasts.  There are eight attitudes or positions of the lion in heraldry, the rampant lion being one of them – standing erect with forepaws and one hind paw raised as if to strike.  The rampant lion is seen on many coats of arms including, but not limited to – England, Finland, the Netherlands, Morocco, Norway, Scotland.
