This handmade jewellery is inspired by my photograph of Cronfa Alwen, a wonderful 5km-long reservoir near Pentre-Llyn-Cymmer, North Wales. A regular destination for us, this stunningly deep blue lake and its surrounding forests and moorland are perfect for walking our excitable young Labrador.
One of November’s birthstones, topaz is thought to be named after the Sanskrit tapas, meaning ‘fire’. Hindu literature points to its functions as a lengthener of life and provider of wisdom.
One of the birthstones for September, sapphire’s symbolism is as diverse as its hues, having been associated with youth and old age, power and kindness, and wealth alongside freedom from envy.
34mm 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.
Thanks for looking. Commissions welcome.
