This handmade jewellery is inspired by my photograph of Lake Powell. Straddling the border between the US states of Utah and Arizona, this mesmerising reservoir snakes through stunning sedimentary cliffs, its deep blue tones – a mirror of the cloudless sky – juxtaposed against the warm pinks and oranges of the enveloping walls of rock.
 
Discovered fairly recently, chrome diopside is a rich green gemstone which, perhaps due to its verdant colouring, is believed by some to foster a connection with the natural world.
 
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.
 
A February birthstone, amethyst has traditionally symbolised sobriety – its name derives from the Greek ametusthos, “not intoxicated”. More recently, it has also been tied to deep emotional bonds.
 
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.
 
A December birthstone, tanzanite was first discovered in 1967 in Tanzania, borrowing its name from its origin country. It is often worn by Tanzanian mothers to grant their new-borns happy lives.
 
30mm long (~1 inch), 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.
