Beautiful nuggets in turquoise and marble. Each stone is unique, with varying shades of blue, green and grey. A long time favourite, I've always loved to incorporate them into new designs. For these necklaces I wanted the focus to be on the natural beauty of the stones and approached the design to create a subtle statement. They are now available as one-of-a-kind necklaces in the Limited Edition collection.

I've been updating the shop this month with a new collection of limited edition necklaces featuring Peruvian opal, natural magnesite and marble. Each stone is one-of-a-kind and individually photographed, so you'll be able to explore and find the stone you love. Here are some of my favourites from the current collection and a look at what's coming up next....

The shop will be seeing some changes over the next couple of months and I’ve been sorting through old and new samples in preparation. I couldn’t resist taking a few photos of these colourful gemstone bracelets with faceted citrine, quartz, feldspar, jasper and moonstone getting me in the mood for the approaching spring season.
beaded bracelets with rope, leather and semi-precious stones
When working with semi-precious stones it's easy to get inspired by the material itself. Ocean jasper is a perfect example, with it's varying colours and orb-like patterns. Since finding the ocean jasper slab pictured above, I've been keeping an eye out for similar hued gemstones. The rope necklace on the far left features a beautiful piece of ocean jasper with spotted patterns resembling something of a deep sea nature. Sadly, it’s the only one I have at the moment, but I’m on the lookout for more!
