Thank you for taking the trouble to check out my bio!

The initials of my name are A.M.O.’R. I am Irish (the O’R might be a give away there!) but I lived in Spain through my twenties and it’s a lucky coincidence that ‘amor’ is the Spanish for ’love.’ This shop is truly a labour of love.

PASSION, INDIVIDUALITY AND QUALITY

A PASSION FOR GEMSTONES

As a small child I used to paint beach pebbles with my Mum's nail polish, convinced I could make them into shiny jewels. I messed up her polish so badly my Mum decided to buy me some enamel paints and I switched to making paperweights and ornaments for her flower pots.

Over the years I moved on to various crafts from knitting truly awful teacosies, to embroidering dragons and symbols on denim jackets as a teenager. Years later, I rediscovered a passion for shiny things and beautiful gemstones.

When you wear a stone, essentially, you carry a little piece of the earth with you. Though commonly used as adornments, through history, gemstones have also been prized for their associated energies or as talismans.

The Chinese have used jade as a healing stone for centuries. Rose quartz is associated with all types of love. Carnelian amulets were worn by Greek Soldiers to give them courage. The national stone of Ireland, Connemara marble, is (naturally) associated with the luck of the Irish as well as serenity and peace.

Whether you believe strongly in the meanings of stones or not, it is nice to know their stories and it can make choosing a gift all the more fun.
