The Gemstones and Pearls

Most of my designs are made in very small editions because I source my stones in small quantities, so you are sure of owning a very versatile and individual piece of jewellery.

Almost 100 % of the gemstones and pearls that I use are certified ethically sourced, so that you can be sure that they have been created in safe facilities, by workers who are treated well and paid fair wages to work legal hours – and that my gemstone suppliers respect the environment during the mining and finishing processes.  (The ones that don’t arrive with a certificate are not necessarily unethical in any way, it’s just that I don’t have written proof.)

From ancient times, people have ascribed gemstones with certain powers for their bearer eg love, luck, protection etc.  Even if you don’t believe in this yourself, wearing genuine gemstone jewellery is a great way to remind yourself of your needs and intentions, so I have included information about the attributes of the gemstones used in my designs.  Although complementary therapies/crystal healing can be used safely alongside conventional medicine, they should never be used in place of seeking the correct medical advice if you are ill.
