£59.95

 
Gorgeous natural 7mm x 5mm baguette-shaped Blue Topaz semi-precious gemstones, complimented by a wonderfully crafted 5mm x 3mm pear drop-shaped green Tourmaline & two 4mm x 3mm pear drop-shaped Pink Tourmaline semi-precious gemstones. These gemstones are handset in sterling silver in a prong setting!
 
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 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.
 
An October birthstone, tourmaline was reported by one 18th-century Dutch scientist to induce sleep, whilst ancient traditions from Africa and India believe it to strengthen moral judgement.
 
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.
 
Thanks for looking. Commissions welcome.
