This handmade jewellery is inspired by my photograph of the stunning white sands of the long Fort Myers Beach on Estero Island, sitting just off the coast of Florida. Here, those looking out across the gorgeous aquamarine waters are met with unforgettable vistas of the Gulf of Mexico.
Apatite, an arresting gemstone which naturally occurs in a broad array of hues, is named after the Greek apate (‘deceit’) as its varied colours have fooled many into mistaking it for other minerals.
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.
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.
This pendant, attached to an 18-inch chain, will come alongside these 35mm long (~1 1/4 inch) earrings, forming a dazzling gemstone set which 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 pair which makes the perfect gift.
Thanks for looking. Commissions welcome!
