As a child, I used to watch my father create these amazing cigar boxes out of beautifully patterned wood. The variations and colors that shined through the finished product were so unique and mesmerizing. My interest in gemstones and minerals also started around the same time, and I would spend hours in the backyard, hoping to unearth some gorgeous gemstone from the ground.

Years later, after starting my own jewelry business, designing and curating beautiful stones to make hand-crafted jewelry, a friend asked me if I could design something special out of wood for his wife as an anniversary present. I knew the right person who could help me make this special piece: Phyllis of Keeper Goods. She launched an innovative brand that specializes in providing beautifully designed products via laser cutting and engraving that store your most precious items in the most fashionable way. Together, we created a memorable custom piece for my friend. And it didn’t stop there. So inspired, we brainstormed and created a full line of jewelry. Real wood, real gemstones, Keeper Goods fabricated designs, Chris Ching crafted jewelry.

A little bit about the materials used:
G
G
Gold filled hardware: All of the chain, wire and components are gold filled, which means that it contains a permanent bond with the base metal, which allows the material to last up to 30 years even with every day wear. To be considered gold-filled, quantity of gold must be at least 1/20th by weight of the total product and at least 10k in gold (ours is more!).

Genuine gemstones: Diamonds, emeralds, sapphires & rubies! All of the stones are natural, real, and beautiful. Chris takes great care in choosing stones that are beautifully cut, but minimally altered from their natural state.

Bolivian Rosewood: We love the strength, weight and coloring of this exotic wood.  The natural texture & grain lines give a feeling of warmth and the laser cutting adds a modern edge to the pieces. The wood is laser cut, engraved, and each piece is then sanded and polished.
