I use only natural semi precious gemstones in my jewellery.
I choose them for their light, personality,
vibrational energies and their beauty
and of course the four C’s
colour, cut, clarity and carats feature too ūüôā

I love the organic shapes, I love the cuts,
I love the way the light plays with them.
I spend days choosing stones
and I never seem to lose that sense of awe
at their beauty, their magic, their brilliance.
I love their imperfections as well as the perfections.
As I say each piece fights to come home with me.

Some are calibrated to fit my designs.
Others are individually cut;
and then I build the designs around them.
All are custom cut for sh√£shen.
The unique nature of the gemstones
means that the colour and composition
of the individual stones vary.
Some such as aquamarine and tourmaline
will have natural inclusions
which I think adds to their beauty
and giving them a personality
and uniqueness of their own.
Like us no two are alike.

For centuries gemstones have been valued
for their healing qualities
as much as their use for adornment.
I have listed these qualities below.
I believe in these subtle vibrational energies.
They work differently for everyone
and you may or may not believe in them
or even be aware of them.

More than anything I design the jewellery
to create beautiful pieces
that you will enjoy wearing and
will remind you of your innate beauty
as you touch, them see them and feel them on your skin
or play with the stones as you wear them.

Why and how do crystals work?

Crystals grow in the earth’s crust
over millions of years at high pressures and heat.
When they are extracted they contain
the most energy of all objects on the earth
because of how they have been formed.
When they are worn on the body a crystal
will refract and reflect light
into your electromagnetic field; your aura.
This helps your body to vibrate
and function at a higher frequency.
Stones are powerful and are used today
in everything from biodynamic farming
to microscopic surgery
and in all forms of technology.

 

How to choose the right stone for you

Choose the stone that you are most drawn to.
Don’t be tempted to first read the meanings.
When I was first showing the jewellery
I thought whether to label the different stones
but I ‘received’ very clearly not to:
that people would be drawn to the stones they needed
and labels would serve as a distraction.

Your subconscious energetic body
will always know what is the most beneficial stone
for you a particular time.
When you read the meaning of the gemstone
that you are most attracted to,
you will find that you have chosen
the most beneficial for you for right now.

I have seen it too many times now
not to believe it.
Your attraction to stones will change
as your needs and you life journey evolves.

Our energy changes,
sometimes daily
and as we move through the various stages
and learn different things about ourselves
and the world in which we live.

It is so true that
we are discovering
more about ourselves every day.

 

How to choose a gemstone for someone else

One way to do this is to think about this person or visualise them,
projecting that visualization to the crystals,
and selecting the crystal you are drawn to
(or crystal you respond to
while visualizing the other person).
