    This handmade jewellery is inspired by my photograph of an astonishing river feature known as a gooseneck, a deep and dramatic meander where a river valley curves around a monolithic outcrop of rock, assuming the stunning shape of a narrow horseshoe. Here, the winding channel of the San Juan river weaves its way through the sloping sedimentary cliffs of Utah, USA.
     
    An October birthstone, opal was once dubbed the ‘Patron of Thieves’, believed to render its wearer invisible. Now, though, the opal is more commonly seen as a stone of love and protection.
     
    An October birthstone, Australian opal is a serene gemstone with lively mythological associations; according to Aboriginal Australian legend, a colossal opal reigns over the cosmos and all within.
     
    30mm long (~1 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.
