Welcome to Guyot Brothers Irregular E-letter

Hmm, we thought, what would happen if we riveted ring shanks together with some of our other items?  Just a little experiment or two has turned out  some fun and interesting finger rings that are just waiting for plating, some faceted stones, a cameo or cabochon, and your special design touch.  As always, if you would like to receive samples (volume users only, please) just give us a call, send a fax, or send an email, and we will get them out to you.

And on a vintage note, Andrea was rummaging through a box of jewelry she had made when she was in her early teens, and she ran across this phenomenon.  In the 1960's Marshall Guyot and his brother, Roy, had experimented with making filigree out of a plastic material known as Marbon.  It was available in a variety of colors, so for the young girl who was growing up in the midst of it, the plastic filigree brought an outlet for some of her outsized ideas! Sales of the plastic filigrees were not as robust as they had hoped, and it was discontinued after a short period of time.
