Pretty in Pink - It Does the Body Good

I love pink, I love pink gemstones but what is it about pink that makes it so desired?

There’s something about pink that induces attention, and not only by women! The myriad of pink gems is vast, incorporating beautiful gemstones in every shade.

It’s no surprise that pink and jewellery go together like the strawberries and cream. While all things pink has glittered for eons. Anything is possible with sunshine and a little pink....

Shades of Blue

Tones Of Blue

Pretty in Pink - It Does the Body Good

Blue denotes both sea and the sky, also coupled with open space, intuition, freedom, vastness, imagination and compassion. Blue also represents trust, loyalty, meanings of depth, faith, heaven, intelligence, sincerity and confidence.

Blue has positive effects on the body and mind and as the colour of the spirit, it calls upon the body to rest and this will cause the body to produce chemicals that give one a feeling of calm and emanate feelings of tranquillity.

Some blues are not sedate and serene and electric blues and brilliant blues along with shades of blue with too much blue may come across as uncaring and cold and could dampen spirits.

Blue gemstones are thought to aid in enabling calm and relaxation in crisis/chaotic situations, they can also to open the flow of communication between loved ones, to feel sincerely inspired, and to gain the courage to speak from the heart.

Green Agate

The Greatness of Green

When it positively, absolutely has to be the colour between blue and yellow - Green

Green, the colour of life, of energy and Mother Nature. Freshness, safety and with one accord. Green can be as fresh as a flower, or can symbolise danger such as anger and jealousy. Gemstones of this colour denote the colour of nature and life. Green stones can represent synchronisation and maintaining equilibrium.   Green can soothe your heart chakra and create calm to your relationships and life.

Pearls Closeup

Just Simply Pearls

What is important with pearls is the woman who is wearing them.

Even though Pearls are categorised as a gemstone, Pearls are exceptionally unique and exclusive, essentially due to the fact that they are the only gem material formed and found within a living creature.

Contrasting to other gemstones i.e. diamonds, emeralds and more, pearls need no cutting or polishing before they are fashioned into fabulous jewellery. I adore pearls and I believe they are just simply stunning the way they form naturally.

Purple Buds

Exquisite purple jewellery to make you feel fantastic.

Purple combines the calm stability of blue and the fierce energy of red. The color purple is often associated with royalty, nobility, luxury, power, and ambition. Purple also represents meanings of wealth, extravagance, creativity, wisdom, dignity, grandeur, devotion, peace, pride, mystery, independence, and magic.

The jewellery I have created is mainly from the semi precious stone Amethyst, with a few varieties thrown in. Amethyst as we know is a purple variety of the quartz mineral species. It's the gem that's most commonly associated with the colour purple, even though there are other purple gems such as sapphire and tanzanite. ... Amethyst's purple color can range from a light lilac to a deep, intense royal purple, and from brownish to vivid.

Sunset

The Colours of the

Sunset

The colours of the sunset will empower you.

The orange gold unfolds far and wide, the colour of fire grates and tangerines. The sun poured out its dazzling hot oranges, yellows and reds into the clouds like a pot of igneous lava and then the golden fiery sphere slowly sank saying to us the land has rested once more…

Modern Earrings

Just Earrings

Ear piercing is one of the oldest known forms of modifying the body with creative and transcribed indications from cultures around the world dating back to early history. Earrings, along with other Jewellery made of Gold, Lapis Lazuli and Carnelian were found as early as 2600 BC in the Royal Cemetery at Ur. Hoop earrings of Gold, Silver and Bronze were very predominant in the Minoan people. There is also examples of earrings seen on the murals on the Aegean Island of Santorini in Greece. Early indication of earrings worn by men can be seen in archaeological evidence from Persepolis in ancient Persia. There are carved images of soldiers of the Persian Empire, displayed on some of the surviving walls of the palace, show them wearing an earring…

 
 

Luscious Lampwork and 

Foiled Glass

Lampwork beads are handmade beads that are crafted out of molten glass using a eras old method known as lampworking. The term “lampwork” is consequential that oil lamps were once used as the heat source to heat the glass used in this process. These handcrafted beads may be either plain or decorative, depending upon how the artist chooses to create them. Many times, numerous tiers of glass are used, as well as multiple colours to produce the preferred result. Foiled Glass have have either silver or gold foil running through them - very stunning and attractive.

A Little taste of Summer

When I walk outside to the garden, I can feel the warmth of the sun on my skin. I look and see the sky blazing blue and the sun is a jamboree of yellows, yellows of all shades and he is free, bright and stunning.

From my garden my reminiscence of beach holidays to the East Coast of Yorkshire, where the sand was golden, amber, brown and orange all at once and sitting and watching the sea rise and fall towards the beach. The colours and shades of blues and greens intermingling as the sea slides like flowing paint towards me.

As the water moves delicately through my fingers embracing every part of my hand. As I remove my hand from the sea, I watch the drops trickle down my fingers, moving like beautiful crystal stones in different directions. I lift my hand to watch the drops form, by gravity, at my nails and it reminds me of earrings of beautiful blues hanging delicately.

I can close my eyes and see the colours of the meadows and fields around where I live, and I imagine pretty delicate necklaces like daisy chains forming in my mind…
