shell, pearl and amethyst necklace




High quality shell beads are so iridescent that they are always sure to make for a big impact piece. I have taken purple, peach and white beautiful large shell beads, chained them up in a repeating colour pattern and framed them with delicate pure white pearls and purple faceted amethyst beads. I have then used the dainty white pearls to extend round to the clasp, punctuated with the purple amethyst beads. The sterling silver lobster clasp fits with an adjustable sterling silver chain, allowing for extra wearability - plus I think the chain is a lovely feature in itself!






Pearl and amethyst attributes and healing properties:

Pearl symbolises purity, faith, charity and innocence. Pearls help provide focus and enhance personal integrity. 

Amethyst is a protective stone associated with increased nobility, spiritual awareness, meditative and psychic abilities, inner peace and healing. Amethyst is thought to transform negative energy, bring an understanding of death and rebirth, promote an altered state of consciousness and relieve stress. Amethyst is considered one of the most important and powerful stones and is the birth stone for February.

a gem of a quote

I came across this quote, and found it so inspiring and insightful that I want to share it ....

“Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving”





This is what Albert Einstein wrote in a letter to his son Eduard in 1930. I'd have to agree with him. Perhaps some of the unbalances found within people and society are partly as a result of an obsession with holding on to the way things are, and a resistance against flowing with the natural passing of time...

two feathered friends


I just had to share these two feathered friends with everyone. I came across them on my recent trip to sunny Greece. They are carved out of precious stones and we think they look spectacular. The colours and natural variations of the stones really reflect a birds delicate plumage - amazing. Even though they are made from stone, they look so light and dainty - I wouldn't have been surprised if one had stretched out its wings and flown away!

amethyst pendant


Amethyst has long had a special place amongst the gemstones. This is partly because its distinguishing purple colouring has made it a royal favourite - fine amethysts are mounted in the British Crown Jewels and a royal preference for amethyst dates right back to the Ancient Egyptians. I think the royals of all ages were on to a good thing, which is why I have created this necklace made exclusively with amethyst.


The beautifully formed deep purple drop shaped amethyst pendant hangs between triangular beads that imitate the light catching facets of the centre-piece. Delicate spherical amethyst beads of varying hues from almost clear through to lilac and splendid inky purple finish this piece and a silver lobster clasp ensures a safe fastening.

pearl bracelet with white flower



Continuing with the gems of the ocean theme, I have again united pearl with swarovski crystals creating this lustrous piece. Iridescent white baroque pearls extend either side of a delicate white flower beautifully framed by glittering aquamarine swarovski crystals. A silver lobster clasp ensures a safe fastening.

The white and blue combination is reminiscent of blue waters lapping along white sand beaches. With this association, as well as the precious stones themselves, tranquility radiates from this piece. 




Pearl attributes and healing properties:

Pearl symbolises purity, faith, charity and innocence. Pearls help provide focus and enhance personal integrity.

pearl, coral & mother of pearl necklace




This necklace was inspired by prisitine white beaches and clear blue waters. Three special gems found at sea - Pearl, Coral and Mother of Pearl - are combined to create this gentle and natural looking necklace. I wanted a piece that allowed the wearer to always have a piece of the ocean spirit with them.

The lucky four leaf clover coral pendant is framed by the mother of pearl, and light pink rice pearls complete this charming piece.







Pearl, Coral and Mother of Pearl attributes and healing properties:

Pearl symbolises purity, faith, charity and innocence. Pearls help provide focus and enhance personal integrity. 

Coral symbolises joy and happiness, promoting the wearer to enjoy life. Coral absorbs negative energy and promotes friendship and creativity.

Mother of Pearl provides protection and relief from stress. Mother of Pearl harnesses the gentle healing power of the sea and soothes our emotions, allowing them to become more balanced. Mother of Pearl is a first anniversary gemstone.

agate & pearl butterfly necklace


I have combined yellow faceted Agate beads, green baroque Pearls and yellow and citron Swarovski Bicone crystals with lace and silver fittings to create a fresh summery look. The centre piece is an ornate imprinted buttterfly made from silver. This bright necklace is perfect for everyday wear, and would also make a lovely accompaniment to summery evening attire.



Agate and Pearl attributes and healing properties:

The gemstone Agate is a grounding stone - it brings about an emotional, physical and intellectual balance. Agate harmonises yin and yang, is soothing and calming and helps build self confidence. This crystal can improve concentration and perception by enhancing mental function. 

Pearls symbolise purity, and they signify faith, charity and innocence. Pearls help provide focus and enhance personal integrity.
