Earth, Fire, Water and Wind

Based on a native American tradition, the four elements help describe a person's spirit, their basic nature and temperament. Depending on when you are born determines which element you personify.

Hand carved into recycled sterling silver, a stylized image of each element serves as a reminder to what your greatest strengths are. Whether you are fiery force or a calming presence, a grounded thinker or a curious dreamer, each element is necessary, unique and admirable in its own way. Accented with a semi-precious gemstone that matches the element's sentiment. Handmade in Los Angeles by Mindy and Grant Searcey. Includes card explaining each element.

Mindy and Grant Searcey

Mindy and Grant Searcey are the husband-wife team behind Searcey Designs, which they founded in 2004. Each has brought their own experiences and outlooks to make their line of jewelry unique and memorable.

Mindy always fancied herself a female Indiana Jones--going so far as to major in anthropology and travel as much as possible. "The treasures and historical relics were fascinating to me," Mindy says. "But to me, the real treasure was to be found in the journey."

After many travels and different jobs, Mindy began making and designing jewelry. She has been doing it for ten years.

Grant has always considered himself an artist. He painted and illustrated professionally before he began designing jewelry in 2004. "Designing jewelry opens up my imagination to a third dimension, allowing me to create an art form that is not limited to a flat surface," he says.

Grant is inspired by organic shapes and natural growth. He strives to make each piece unique and original--so that the wearer can express his or her own individuality.

    Comments about ELEMENTS NECKLACE:

    My boyfriend bought me this necklace. I had really liked the meaning behind it when I saw it at first and thought they were the coolest things ever, but was rather disappointed when I received it. It was a lot smaller than expected and the silver chain looks extremely cheap. (Like something I'd buy at [...].) But nonetheless the carving and whatnot look good... just NOT worth [$].

      Gave this to my daughter for her 15th birthday and she loves it! A very nicely made pendant on a chain that is just the right length. A unique and beautiful gift.

        The necklace is lovely and the descriptive message is so accurate -- my friend is "Fire" by her birthdate and she IS "fire." She loved the gift and the thought that was behind it. A perfect combination.

          Comments about ELEMENTS NECKLACE:

          I read all of the reviews before I ordered this and I would say most were accurate. Therefore, I expected the chain to not look terribly high quality and for the pendant to be smaller than one might guess, looking at the picture. With that said, I am happy with my purchase.

                  I read all the comments before I bought mine, negative and positive, and still wanted one for myself because I'm all about the elements. I LOVE mine! My new favorite necklace and I wear it everyday. I feel it's good quality. The chain is shinier than my other chains, I guess that's what people may have constrewed as cheaper looking(?), but I love that it's shinier. I wear mine in the shower all the time and have had no issues you'd get from 'cheap quality'. Suits me perfectly although I wish it was a little less expensive.

                      Comments about ELEMENTS NECKLACE:

                      The quality of the metal was fine, but the casting had been poorly done. For example, there was flash along more than one third of the medallion edge but no effort had been made to correct the problem. And, while the quality of the gemstone was acceptable, it had not been set evenly and canted up at an easily noticeable angle.
