The Liztech Teapot Pin


Lately I've taken to wearing my tea-themed jewelry even more than usual, and the one piece I've gotten comments on every single time I've worn it is this Liztech Teapot Pin. I first discovered the creative Jill Elizabeth and her Liztech jewelry months ago but simply didn't have $61 to spend on a teapot pin, lovely as these are. Happily, a careful watch of eBay turned up an older version of the pin for about a third of the going price.

The back of the pin makes it pretty clear this is indeed a handmade piece, and as someone who appreciates handmade things, I like that!

It's also a nice touch that there is a small gold tag stamped "Liztech" in addition to the handwritten signature Liztech '01 which lets me know when this pin was crafted. If you want to see the current crop of teapot pins, go here.

Angela thank you for sharing this piece with us. I can see why it costs so much- fantastic creativity & craftmanship- and I can see why you always get so many compliments.

Your Liztech teapot pin is really unique. Thanks for sharing the link. Wouldn't you love to attend the Gallery Tea Party?

Wow - it is gorgeous! And very novel. I love the cobalt blue.

When your pictures came up I could only see the back of the pin and couldn't even imagine how the front must look. It is very cute indeed. I understand why you get comments on it.

Hi:
The artist (and owner) of LizTech is my mother's cousin, Jill. She started her business a long time ago and it's grown quite a lot. She doesn't make every pin now but every pin is handmade by art students. She owns an old bank bldg in E. Strousburg, PA and has a nice store and gallery. Her work is original and modern. I'm glad you're enjoying her work also.

I too like tea-themed jewelry though I couldn't wear most of it myself, being a guy. I think it shows good taste to promote tea as beautiful. --Spirituality of Tea
