Barb Alexander Designs

Wholesale Only

Adorn beautiful knitted or hand-woven garments with a shawl stick or pin that turns heads. Perfect on an open-weave shawl, cowl, scarf, hat, cardigan, ruana…not just a closure, these are pieces of jewelry. A collaborative effort between silversmiths in Bali and myself, these hand-made metal shawl pins are made from a blend of allergy-free silver-colored metals that will not tarnish.

Art meets function!

One obvious advantage of being a tour guide to Bali for the last decade is my personal connections with the artistic Balinese…including the silversmiths.

For several years I have collaborated with a silversmith named Nyoman. I provide him with design possibilities, we work together tweaking prototypes and his small staff produces the items I offer my customers.

As I’m not a trained silversmith, this collaboration is a dream come true.  The metal used in my product line is called “white bronze” – a non-tarnishing blend of zinc, copper and tin.  Some of the earrings in my line are 100% sterling silver and all of my earrings have sterling silver ear wires.

Adornments designed in Victoria, Canada and hand-made in Bali, Indonesia. Fair trade in every sense!
