This handmade jewellery is inspired by my photograph of Lake Bala in Gwynedd, North Wales. Formed by the rivers Tryweryn and Dee and known as ‘Llyn Tegid’ to the locals, these expansive, captivating waters are both the largest natural lake in Wales and the supposed home of mythical monster ‘Teggie’, the nation’s own answer to the Loch Ness Monster.
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.
Iolite, occasionally called a ‘water sapphire’, is sometimes considered a September birthstone. Used as a guide by Norse seafarers, this ‘Vikings’ Compass’ embodies a keen sense of direction.
Attached to an 18-inch chain, this dazzling gemstone pendant will arrive packaged in a small gift box featuring the image of its inspiration on the inside of the lid. Combined with an organza bag, this results in a gorgeously-presented piece which makes the perfect gift.
