The project, an attempt to "access the power of metal," is designed, forged, and crafted in Rhode Island. 

"Through an innovative proprietary bonding process, the metals used in each piece are refined and forged to alchemical standards of purity that create wearable, energetic tools," the company said in a release, according to a report.

"This new venture is incredibly special to me, because it combines elements of my culture, my beliefs, and one of my passions – fine jewelry," said Founder Carolyn Rafaelian, who also owns Belcourt of Newport, Bar & Board in Newport, and Sakonnet Vineyards in Little Compton, per the report.

"Metal Alchemist jewelry is the first of its kind in so many ways – from the quality of the precious metals to our proprietary refining and bonding processes that we do in-house, right here in Rhode Island, to working with ancient alchemical techniques in a whole new way," Rafaelian explained. "We knew partnering with REEDS was the right decision for this launch because they also value quality, craftsmanship, and customer experience."

Per the release, Metal Alchemist will come in three main collections: Precious Bonded Metal, Woven Metal Mesh, and Intention Wire. The items will be ranged between $28 to $2,800.
