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.

Amethyst attributes and healing properties:

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.

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.
