This handmade jewellery is inspired by my photograph of the exotic blooms of Bali, an Indonesian island often called the ‘Isle of the Gods’. The flowers of this tropical paradise are as vibrant as the culture which blossoms there, their arrestingly flamboyant hues catching the eye and impressing the memory.
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.
An October birthstone, Australian opal is a serene gemstone with lively mythological associations; according to Aboriginal Australian legend, a colossal opal reigns over the cosmos and all within.
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.
