Letrek Jewelry  by Marcia Kertel Designs
 

One of a kind handcrafted and custom Jewelry  

Magnetic & Titanium Jewelry


I have been so excited about working with Titanium and designing new pieces. I cannot seem to keep them in stock long enough to get them all in featured in my web store.

Titanium metal has a grey almost antiqued appearance that looks great on both men and women. My extra small horseshoe chain is a great men's piece that is so unique with or without a pendant. It is an everyday chain. One of my favorite things about Titanium is that it is so lightweight and comfortable to wear and it is hypoallergenic. I can use Titanium to make my ear wires for a uniform look when designing earrings.

If you see any design on my website pages that you would like in Titanium, please visit my contact page and drop me a note. It is my goal in 2012 to bring you more pieces to my web store.

Interestingly, TITANIUM has opened another avenue for me......MAGNETIC THERAPY.

It all started with a friend who loved my titanium jewelry and wanted me to incorporate magnets in a bracelet designed for him. Magnets help releive his pain. This comment came from someone who I would have never thought would believe in such a thing. So I had to do some research on magnets.

Did you know???

* The ancient Greeks and Egyptians' used magnets 3000 years ago to heal the sick.

*When a magnet is placed over the body, the charged particles of iron in the blood and other cell tissue become attracted to the magnet. The result of this process may increase blood flow, heat and the increase speed of oxidation and nutrient saturation body tissue. As a result, a person might feel more energized, awake or physically better a result of this treatment.

* The human body emits electrical signals to inform the body and brain of pain. This pain may be physical, as with arthritis, or emotional, as with depression. Magnetic therapy, utilized across the body, might disrupt these pain signals. With the pain signals disrupted, the discomfort of physical pain is eased. Also, nerve chemicals that stabilize brain chemistry could be disrupted as well

*You should not use magnetic therapy if you have a pace maker.

*It takes approximately 30 days of wearing your magnets to benefit from their effects.

After my research and knowing I that suffer chronic back pain, I was excited to make his bracelet and curious to try it myself. Since my pain is located in my upper and mid back, I created a long strand of magnetic beads and hooked them to one of my chains, so it would cascade down my spine. Though it has not taken away all of my pain, I must say that it has helped with the nerve damage I suffer.

Being a jewelry designer, I had to see what types of jewelry designs were available that incorporated magnets. I can say that my pieces are unique, handmade and always one of a kind.

I have since created magnetic bracelets, necklaces, pendants, rings, toe rings and earrings in both sterling silver and titanium, wherever you might suffer pain.

I look forward to your feedback, should you purchase any of the pieces in my web store.

I am excited and encouraged to take this path in helping those, like myself, cope with pain.
