This handmade jewellery is inspired by my photograph of Yellowstone National Park’s incredible geysers. A vital part of any visit to this 3500-square-mile slice of paradise is witnessing the Upper Geyser Basin’s famous Old Faithful, which jets plumes of steam and superhot water to incredible heights of up to 185 feet. Elsewhere, the equally impressive Grand Prismatic, a shimmering hot spring, wows with its dazzling kaleidoscope of colour.
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.
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.
Thanks for looking. Commissions welcome!
