Welcome to Guyot Brothers Irregular E-letter

Often we receive inquiries from folks who are looking for hoops to use in their jewelry, and as I was perusing the line to select some pieces for samples, I couldn't help but notice how many different styles of hoops we make, all stamped.  What is shown here is only a smattering of what we produce, given the variety of sizes, surfaces, and daps that are available.  If hoops are something you use, let us know.  Maybe we have something you would want to add to your jewelry line.

Stamped brass hoops for making jewelry and other accessories

We know that jewelry making is not a new idea.  In fact jewelry dating back 75,000 years made from shells has been found in Kenya. Hellenistic earrings fashioned from hoops with adornments attached have dated to the second century, BC.  Viking jewelry made in the form of hoops dating back to 3000 years BC can be found on display at the National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh, Scotland.
