Do you mean fundamental particles or atomic elements?

All the kinds of atoms got made up to the limits of stability with humans playing a part in the effort...http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/sciencenow/3313/02.html

If you mean particles, there are theories predicting wimps and other exotica that could be there and not yet observed.

According to big bang nucleosynthesis all elements heavier than Lithium were formed in stars.

I meant elements as in the periodic table.

Lithium is the heavy weight element from the big bang, as Allday noted. Intergalactic gas clouds strongly corroborate predictions of BB nucleosynthesis. The sprinkling of heavier elements in these enormous structures are believed to be stellar byproducts.
