Hi there!

With Gemstone Orchid I express myself creatively with no boundaries, and incorporate my interest in archaeology, ancient civilizations and ancient history into my work and create unique pieces of jewellery. My inspiration also comes from having travelled to many countries and throughout the UK with my notebook, taking notes, photographs and sketched from countless museum exhibitions I have visited over the years.

I look forward to rejuvinating my Etsy store, keeping it fresh and introducing new items and new lines of jewellery - I already have great ideas in the pipeline.

Please enjoy!
