What is gold-filled?

Gold-filled jewelry has 100 x more 12K or 14k gold than plated jewelry. The gold will not wear off as it is a layer of gold heat and pressure bonded to a base metal core. Gold-filled jewelry is a cost conscious alternative to solid gold.  In some instances, it can tarnish, but is easily cleaned with mild, soapy water and a soft cloth. Gold-filled jewelry can last a lifetime.

 


About the Creator:

Welcome to Rhubarb Handcrafted Jewelry by Tina Steele

All my life I’ve been a maker, creator, and explorer, in my own quiet way.  This life of creating lead me to the Silvermine School of Art, which is where I fell in love with and studied the art of metalsmithing.

No mass production here; only one-of-a-kind and limited edition jewelry made by my two hands in my Fairfield studio.  Each piece is mindfully fabricated with intention, heart, and the utmost attention to detail.  Rhubarb Jewelry is wearable every day and complements your own beauty and sense of style.  

The production of jewelry often involves harsh chemicals whichare harmful to the maker and to the planet. In 2020, guided by the ECO Jewelry Handbook, by Christine Dhein, I converted my studio into an eco-conscious environment. Natural productsreplace toxic chemicals, metals come from recycled or reclaimed sources, and stones are ethically-sourced or lab-created.

My eco-friendly jewelry making processes might mean that things take a bit more time, but that’s fine by me as I consider the act of creating part of my daily mediation.  I hope my jewelry can serve as a reminder to the wearer to pause, breathe, connect, and appreciate earth and its inhabitants.
