This handmade jewellery is inspired by my photograph of Valle Crucis Abbey, a ruined 13th-century site of worship situated near Llangollen in Denbighshire. Boasting an elaborate doorway, intricately-carved windows, and several acres of surrounding grassland which now operate as a stunning caravan park, Valle Crucis Abbey offers a unique and engaging slice of Welsh history and architecture.
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 from both asteroids and the moon.
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.
40mm long (~1 1/2 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.
