From raw crystal, bead or gemstone into something to treasure.

There is something so awe-inspiring about the natural beauty that comes out of the ground, incredible colours and shapes that no-one has seen before.

My jewellery reflects that love of the unusual and unique, especially raw gemstones presented in natural form and interesting combinations. I source opals from the miners themselves and cut and polish many of them myself. To do the whole process from start to finish, to see the colour emerge from within a stone and present it in a form to be worn is a very satisfying process. I also learnt to carve with a hand drill so the natural uneven surface colours can be highlighted and preserved.

I have been designing jewellery for fifteen years and my pendants are wire wrapped with Sterling Silver and 14k gold filled wire and recently with antiqued copper. I have found the best thing to do is to let the gemstone itself dictate the direction the wire would take. This has produced lovely and unusual results, and each and every wire wrapped pendant is one of a kind and an item to be treasured. Perfect as gifts both for others and yourself.
I hope you enjoy my collection!
