  • Apatite and Cubic Zirconia Sterling Silver Earrings

    Handset in sterling silver faceted cut 4mm x 3mm oval neon blue Apatite semi-precious natural gemstones, complimented by a stunning faceted cut 9mm x 7mm oval Cubic Zirconia.

     

    This jewellery is inspired by my photography of the mist rising up the Clwyd Valley and through the trees creating this unusual atmospheric view.

     

    Apatite, an eye-catching gemstone which naturally occurs in a broad array of colours, is named after the Greek apate – meaning ‘deceit’ – as its aforementioned colour variety has fooled many into mistaking it for other minerals. This wide range of colours lends apatite a similarly varied range of uses and associations, from elegant adornment to increased concentration.

     

    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.

     

    40mm long (~1 1/2 inchs), 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.

  • Ethiopian Opal, Tanzanite Gemstone, Sterling Silver Necklace

    This enchanting necklace wows with a wonderfully colourful 11mm x 7mm oval faceted earth-mined Ethiopian Opal gemstone complemented by five rich blue 3mm round gemstones of natural rare Tanzanite hand-set in sterling silver.

     

    A December birthstone, tanzanite was first discovered in 1967 in Tanzania, borrowing its name from its origin country. It is often worn by Tanzanian mothers to grant their new-borns happy lives.

     

    As with other opals, Ethiopian opal is a birthstone for October, said to brim with joyously positive emotion whilst also invoking the calmness and restraint required to balance such ardour.

     

    This handmade jewellery is inspired by my photograph of the stunning Capella Madonna di Vitaleta, a lonely chapel sitting in solitude amongst the verdant hills of Tuscany’s Val d’Orcia. A picturesque World Heritage Site framed by the columnar spires of cypress trees and set against the backdrop of the region’s striking mountains, this secluded chapel dates back to the Renaissance era.

     

    Attached to an 18-inch chain, this dazzling gemstone pendant will arrive packaged in a small gift box featuring the image of its inspiration on the inside of the lid. Combined with an organza bag, this results in a gorgeously-presented piece which makes the perfect gift.

    Ruby, Amethyst, Sterling Silver Necklace, Rose Gold Accent

    This captivating pendant necklace features a natural 9mm x 6mm teardrop gemstone of delightful raspberry ruby complemented by 5mm x 3mm gemstones of lavender amethyst. Each serene stone is hand-set in a unique sterling silver setting adorned with elegant accents of rose gold.

     

    A birthstone for July, ruby has long represented power and success; for 8th-century Arabic mystics, dreams of rubies foretold good fortune, whilst in ancient Burma they stood for life itself.

     

    A February birthstone, amethyst has traditionally symbolised sobriety – its name derives from the Greek ametusthos, “not intoxicated”. More recently, it has also been tied to deep emotional bonds.

     

    This handmade jewellery is inspired by my photograph of the Italian hilltop town of Todi, Umbria. Bathed in the striking hues of the setting sun, this enchantingly beautiful spot – believed to have been founded in the 8th century BCE – takes on the picture-perfect quality of a storybook illustration.

     

    Attached to an 18-inch chain, this dazzling gemstone pendant will arrive packaged in a small gift box featuring the image of its inspiration on the inside of the lid. Combined with an organza bag, this results in a gorgeously-presented piece which makes the perfect gift.
