My dream of a modern, organic jewelry line is now a reality as we introduce the first Bri Hana Jewelry a one of kind, custom crafted collection of bracelets, rings, earrings and necklaces.
Named for my two children, Bri Hana is a reflection of my personality and fashion sensibility. Our designs incorporate modern flair with a subtle femininity and a passion for natural stones.
I was raised by a very stylish French mother and an entrepreneurial American father, so I got the best of both worlds. Mom was always creating her own looks and was especially fond of unique jewelry.
From a young age, I wanted to follow in her footsteps. She’s no longer with us, but my Mom was and still is my inspiration. I have been designing jewelry for many years and am thrilled to finally have a collection I can call my own.
Each Bri Hana piece is stamped and handcrafted in the U.S., an additional source of pride for me. I use only the finest natural stones in an effort to give my pieces a raw, natural look. And because we design here in L.A., I am able to create new pieces on a regular basis and have them ready for market in a matter of a couple of weeks.
Our stones include agate, black and white diamonds, natural turquoise, natural corral and amethyst, among others. We use only the finest 14k gold.
Bri Hana price points range from about $75-500. The blue lace Druzy agate ring – a signature piece – retails for $190. An exquisite, all gold, customized version is $1250.
How to Clean Custom Handcrafted Jewelry
Our handcrafted jewelry are mostly made by fragile materials, like gemstone, natural gold and even diamond. Caring and mainenance the Bri Hana handcrafted jewelry must be taking with caution. Nowadays, those popular cleaning machines, e.g ultrasonic jewelry cleaner, is not quite suitable for these valuable crafted jewelry cleaning. The working principle of ultrasonic cleaner is to flush and blow away the grime and particles on the surface and deep in the hold and tunnel. The blowing power is originated from the inset device of transducer that can transform the energy from electric to the sound wave. While these ultra sonic sound wave is traveling through water, millions of tiny bubbles is generated in water. These small bubbles can generate extreme power from its collapsing.
Due to its super power on jewelry cleaning, some fragile jewelry or jewelry with small gemstone charms might be damaged during the process of cleaning. If your jewelry is in high value, it is not suggested to use ultrasonic cleaner to clean your jewelry.
Actually, some home used chemical and tools can well perform the cleaning task for these valuable jewelry. You can use a soft cloth to wipe off the dust and grime on the jewelry. If some grime is hard to remove, you can try some solution, e.g vinegar or specific chemical solution, using a small toothbrush gently brush away those small grime or particles on jewelry.
I like custom design jewelry to transform some piece of junk into high valuable artwork. It is really an enjoyable process. I also pay enough attention on jewelry cleaning and maintenance work, as I won’t want my artwork to lose their glamour quickly, just due to the lack of proper care. These pieces of jewelry are something really valuable that I put down much effort and time to create.
