This handmade jewellery is inspired by my photograph of the historic Llyn Celyn, which, despite its peaceful appearance, bears a controversial history. A man-made reservoir, the creation of this lake involved the submersion of the village of Tryweryn, some of which is still visible today during rare droughts. On most days I visit, the lake’s serene, mid-blue waters speak little of its turbulent past.
One of the birthstones for January, garnet – historically tied to friendship and faithfulness – has long been used for decoration, having been found amongst the relics of ancient Greece and Egypt.
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.
An August birthstone, peridot has been popular since 1500 BCE, when its symbolic powers ranged from dissuading nightmares and promoting bravery to subduing harmful feelings of anger and guilt.
46mm long (~1 3/4 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.
