Suzette Bentley of North Carolina had a life long dream of becoming an entrepreneur. But she never really attempted to realize her goal until after she got into jewelry making, a creative niche she enjoyed. Her creations were inspired by her interests in nature, antiques and in people. Soon she wanted to design the kind of components which appealed to her.  It didn't take long to move to the next step which is to offer the same creative possibilities to others.  And Elements of Antiquity was born.

Elements of Antiquity Giveaway

Her line of aged pewter jewelry supplies target those with  creative souls.  These 3d pieces are lead and nickel free. Made in the USA too, and not offshore. The elaborate antiquing process which gives the findings depth and character certainly inspired the name of the business!

The best thing about pewter is that it does not tarnish like sterling silver.  So these pieces only need a periodic general cleaning. You certainly don't want to remove the gorgeous antiqued look.  The silver look though will help make colored designs pop!

Explore the store. Some of my favorite items include the large feather and key designs!  Suzette is constantly developing other designs so check back often!
