Late in 2018 I went from software engineering to helping my dad Shashi out with the Museum of Jewelry. And I started designing my own line - BoneNE Artifacts.

I often asked where our historically inspired jewelry designs originate from or where I find the museum jewelry we share on social media and sometimes replicate.

Tian-tsui is a lost technique. It's magnificent blue Chinese silver jewelry - the color is derived from a kingfisher feather overlay. Feathers were meticulously cut and glued onto the metal to give it an iridescent blue sheen.  Shashi imported a lot of jewelry before he started designing - he sold it wholesale at trade shows but some of it remains in his warehouse. Our collection of tian-tsui (and most of our Chinese antiques) was originally imported from Beijing - much of it purchased from the Beijing jewelry company - a very large exporter of antique jewelry in those days. A mere six or seven small boxes of these pieces remains in...
