This handmade jewellery is inspired by my photograph of the castle of Dinas Bran near Llangollen, Denbighshire. Situated atop a steep hill, this 13th-century ruin offers a commanding view of the local landscape, its crumbling grey walls framing the delicate green and purple hues of the nature below with the decaying remnants of bygone military might.
 
A March birthstone, aquamarine is named after the serene ocean waters with which it shares its captivating hues. Due to this maritime association, some sailors wear it to bring good fortune.
 
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.
 
36mm long (~1 1/4 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.
 
Commissions welcome. Thanks for looking
