SPONSOR OF THE MONTH FOR November
Elegant Insights products were inspired by a gift I received while struggling through an agonizing time in my life, the loss of my beloved husband, Billy. Life is a journey consisting of many twists and turns, some of them painful and difficult to navigate. So, for a bit of inspiration, I was given a tiny little talisman to help me keep moving forward. It was a "worry stone," with the word "survivor" engraved on one side, and to my surprise, the same word embossed in Braille on the other. Right then and there, the light bulb went on over my head, and the entire concept of the Elegant Insights collection came to me in a single flash of inspiration.
Never one to ignore my intuition or neglect an insight, I set about the task of finding a manufacturer to assist me in bringing my ideas to life. The search began in August, 2009, lasting nearly two years.
At first, I sought a manufacturer already mass-producing Braille jewelry. I looked everywhere, including out-of-country options, and realized that there was no such animal. Besides, I really wanted to find a manufacturer in the USA, since I am a flag-waving maniac, after all.
What I found instead of a large, existing jewelry production outfit was a handful of artisans who made Braille products as a hobby.
Unable to find a ready-made resource, I decided to assemble my own team who would apply their creative energy to "catch the vision," and create the quality jewelry and accessories I wanted to offer. I am so proud of the Elegant Insights team, and I know you'll love their genius.
Elegant Insights jewelry is made with a variety of contemporary metals including copper, brass, and stainless steel. Tactile designs are hand embossed to your specifications. Wear and share your secret messages, give as gifts for loved ones who read Braille, or delight collectors looking for intriguing conversation pieces. All products are hand-crafted and made in the USA.
We offer traditional jewelry items as well as fun accessories for both men and women. We even have beautiful identifiers for your home bar! Choose from our selection of simple initial charm items, or create your own masterpiece by combining several charms and building a custom design. Among our most popular items are our Vain Cane mobility cane charms, our Touch of Purse-onality handbag charms, and our Spot-on military-style dog tags. Prices range from $15.00 to $50.00 for most items.
One important note: The deadline for ordering a custom crafted gift is December 1st, if you need Christmas delivery. We make every bit of your purchase by hand, and custom designs take time. We don't want to cut that delivery date too close! Call 509-264-2588 or email
