90% of our charms and beads are designed and created by us (with the exception of a few “holiday” or special interest charms). They are made from .925 sterling silver with a method called lost wax casting. They all start with an idea which is interpreted by a CAD designer, who in turn creates a model. From there a mold is made which forms the wax. The wax is plaster casted and injected using a centrifuge with either .925 sterling silver or 14kt gold. Lots of hard work goes into the finishing after all that happens. Recently we have added a custom machining method to create custom one of a kind pieces. Cool, huh?
Our Charm Collection
Charms are so versatile and you can use them for just about everything! Here are some great tips for collecting our charms:
- Our charms are easily adaptable to bead bracelets. Simply add a Charm Carrier to your purchase and we will attach it for you.
- Charm bracelet assembly: we assemble all charm bracelets free of charge and are happy to follow any instruction you may provide on charm placement.
- Charms are engraveable. We engrave all of our pieces by hand. Hand engraving although not machine-perfect, is fast, free and a great way to get an important message or race details on the back of your piece.
- Easily add charms to your existing charm bracelet. Simply add a Charm Clasp which enables you to simply hook your charm in place. The other option is to have a jeweler attach and solder your charm in place. If you are handy, you may be able to use a jump ring yourself. Or, search a YouTube video on “how to use a jump ring.”
Our Bead Collection
In 2007, Inspired Endurance was the first company to create and market race distance beads for the Pandora bracelet. It all started when the owner fell in love with her Chamilia bracelet and it took off from there. Since then, many companies have taken a part in this great idea, however Inspired Endurance is proud to have “The Original Race Bead.”
All of our beads are compatible with Pandora, Chamilia, Troll, and Biagi bracelets. They fit some Brighton bracelets as well, please inquire first.
Custom Race Jewelry
We have several options for you to have your exact details created into a piece of jewelry. All of our custom pieces are hand stamped and finished in our Florida workshop. Each one is unique and no two are alike.
