A Quick Introduction to the Barbara Garwood Line
Each Barbara Garwood piece is handmade by craftswomen in a small village near Chinese Mongolia. Masters in the art have handed down their technique of delicately intertwining sterling silver wires for a 1000 years. They use tweezers to fashion the filigree into intricate patterns, flowers and butterflies. While artisans who have mastered the art of enameling inlay enamel powders which when heated to 1500 F becomes a beautiful colored glass. Each piece of jewelry is either 24kt gold plated or given an antique silver finish then stamped 925 and “BG”. Lastly, the artisans set the stones into each piece. Barbara likes to use many unusual stones like chrysocolla, serpentine and exotic jasper as well as semi precious stones like peridot, amethyst and turquoise. Each piece of jewelry can take two women 4 to 7 days to complete, making every piece of Barbara Garwood jewelry a unique work of art.
