Established in 2001, Wrap It Up Jewelry Designs are original, one-of-a-kind creations, individually handcrafted with fine metals and gems by Jeff and Mary Tullock. All gemstones and dichroic art glass are hand-selected to ensure the highest quality. Both graduates of The William Holland School of the Lapidary Arts, Jeff and Mary hand pick the rough stones and hand cut the cabochons and stones used to make this very unique jewelry. Each piece is made with special care and attention to detail, and is guaranteed for life against defects in materials and workmanship.
All of our designs are created using either solid 14k gold, 14k gold-filled or sterling silver wire. 14k gold-filled is a layer of 14k gold mechanically bonded under heat & pressure to one or more surfaces of supporting base metal, then rolled or drawn to a given thickness. In the jewelry industry the quantity of gold must be at least 1/20th by weight of the total product. The finished product thus has a surface layer of gold of the appropriate karatage, which is very thick compared to rolled gold plate or the heaviest electroplate (or gold plated) material. Gold-Filled items are generally considered life-time products, and the gold layer will not wear off, as it will in electroplated products. Sterling silver is composed of 925 parts of pure silver and 75 parts alloy, usually copper.
Wrap It Up Jewelry was originally formed in 2001 as Bead Happy jewelry designs by Jeff and Mary Tullock. ;In our Tennessee studio, we have created many different styles and works of art. Each piece is made with care and attention to detail, and will last for many years.
