NATURE, ART & SCIENCE
Working in a California studio, the designers create each BAMBOO Jewelry design as a small celebration of nature, art, and science. After the artwork for a design is finished, it's sent to China where it's hand crafted by highly skilled artisans using sterling silver, fine braided wire, and kiln-fired cloisonné enamel.
BAMBOO GIFT BOXES
Every piece of BAMBOO Jewelry comes packaged in an eco-friendly bamboo gift box lined with anti-tarnish fabric. Bamboo, though harder than oak or maple, is actually a fast growing grass which can be harvested every three to five years. The bamboo used for the gift boxes is plantation grown without the use of irrigation, fertilizers, or pesticides; nor is it a food source or habitat for endangered pandas.
Because of fabrication difficulties, most cloisonné jewelry rarely blends two or more enamel colors within a single wire-framed cell. BAMBOO Jewelry designs, however, often use multi-color blending to depict three dimensional contours and for realistic shading. It is also uncommon for cloisonné color cells to be created using fine braided wire, but at BAMBOO Jewelry this intricate fabrication method fis used or every piece of jewelry. In addition, all BAMBOO jewelry is enameled on its backside — a process known as counter enameling. Counter enameling minimizes tarnishing, strengthens pieces, and enhances appearance and is not usually found on cloisonné jewelry in BAMBOO’S price range. These are just a few examples of how BAMBOO Jewelry is striving to set new standards of excellence for sterling silver cloisonné jewelry.
