  • AAA Natural Jade Gemstone, Sterling Silver Drop Earrings

    The centrepiece of these elegant earrings is their striking 32mm x 6mm teardrop gemstones of natural jade, fabulous pieces of green splendour hand-set in stylish sterling silver.

    An August birthstone, jade is an enchanting green gemstone with a rich cultural heritage; whilst ancient Greeks believed it to restore eyesight, early Asian cultures held it as a mystical cure-all.

    This handmade jewellery is inspired by my photograph of the breathtaking Val d’Orcia, a valley of unparalleled beauty in the paradisal Italian region of Tuscany. Home to such staggering sights as the Chapel of the Madonna di Vitaleta and the medieval thermal baths of Bagno Vignoni, this idyllic swathe of countryside is truly unforgettable, its undulating hills of green and gold bearing incomparable natural beauty.

    46mm long (~1.8 inches) these dazzling gemstone earrings will arrive packaged in a small gift box featuring the image of their inspiration on the inside of the lid. Combined with an organza bag, this results in a gorgeously-presented pair which makes the perfect gift.

    One of November’s birthstones, topaz is thought to be named after the Sanskrit tapas, meaning ‘fire’. Beliefs around topaz vary – Hindu mythology points to its functions as a lengthener of life and provider of wisdom, whilst some 13th-century mystics claimed that it could sharpen and even restore eyesight and cure mental illness. Because of this, it is often viewed as a sacred stone.

A village in the deep valley of the Rive Trywern, at the foot of the Arenig Mountains was flooded to create a water supply for a major city. On occasions during rare droughts the top of the local chapel is revealed. On most days I visit the serene, calm and mid blue waters are the perfect landscape.

  • Peridot & Cubic Zirconia Sterling Silver Earrings

    This jewellery piece is inspired by a towering mountain in Snowdonia, Mynydd Tryfan serves as the inspiration for this handmade jewellery. Marked by a spine of pointed crags, this wall of stone stands high above untouched grassland against a clear blue sky, appearing like something torn from the pages of a fantasy novel.

     

    A birthstone for the month of April first developed in the USSR in the 1970s, cubic zirconia is created from base substances found in extraterrestrial rock, both from asteroids and the moon. Some claim that it aids in controlling one’s ego and selfishness, as well as in gaining a strong mental and spiritual clarity.

    Acting as a birthstone for the month of August, peridot is a gemstone shrouded in mystery. Its name has no clear origin – some sources suggest it is a derivative of the Latin paederot, which refers to a variety of opal, whereas others claim that it comes from the Arabic faridat, meaning ‘gem’. Its recorded use dates back as far as 1500 BC, where its symbolic powers seemingly ranged from warding off nightmares and promoting bravery to subduing negative feelings of anger and guilt.

     

    20mm long (~3/4 inch), these dazzling gemstone earrings will arrive packaged in a small gift box featuring the image of their inspiration on the inside of the lid. Combined with an organza bag, this results in a gorgeously-presented pair which makes the perfect gift.
