A fantastic and beautiful necklace. I'm very impressed with xLoveGems and how helpful Jo was. It was great she kept in touch and helped me as much as she did. I would definitely recommend looking and using if you want amazing jewelry with 1st class service.
A passion for creating Jewellery
Tiger Finch Jewellery is my passion and I can't stop thinking about new designs, making new pieces and finding new interesting gemstones to fall in love with. My love of gemstones has been with me for as long as I can remember, in was a natural succession for me to work in the field of jewellery and I am lucky to have gained invaluable knowledge and experience about gemstones, especially opals but certainly not exclusive to, as I could just as easily be mesmerised by a lava stone or a beautifully shaped pebble on the beach.
I left behind a great job in London's Hatton Garden Jewellery quarter working for a diamond company to have an adventure and find Opal in the Lightning Ridge Opal fields, here in Australia. I bought rough opal, learnt how to cut and polish and love working with Opals. My entry into the 2011 International Opal Jewellery Design Awards was awarded a highly commended for my trio of uniquely designed opal rings. I live and work in Brisbane now and create all my pieces in the Tiger Finch Jewellery Studio, where I spend as much time as possible creating new pieces and drawing ideas for the future.
Making jewellery is like a way of prolonging the happiness felt by enjoying shaping metal, adding texture and by hand crafting a setting to secure a stunning stone in place. I would like the Jewellery to tell a story, have a story and be unique and special.
I have studied jewellery making techniques as an apprentice, have obtained a City and Guilds level 1 and 2 in Silversmithing and undertook a private study course in Goldsmithing. I am always eager to learn new skills and have my eye on a new direction and a more naturalistic sculptural form for a new Jewellery range on the horizon. :)

I can't stop thinking about new designs, making new pieces and finding new interesting gemstones to fall in love with. Jewellery is a beautiful escape from the mundane, leaving behind precious objects for future generations to discover.
