About

Handmade Gemstone Jewellery To Cherish

WEARABLE ART

I have always been delighted and awed by the beauty that nature creates – as a child I collected shells, and rocks and crystals; and I had to know what each flower, bird, butterfly, animal was. I have also always been interested in art and design, and more by accident than plan I ended up studying History of Art at college…. and I absolutely loved it. Creating unique gemstone jewelry allows me to combine these two loves – I think of my jewelry as wearable art using the gifts of nature.


HOW IT BEGAN...

In 2008 a friend took me shopping with her to a bead store, and I was immediately hooked! As I mastered the basic techniques, I realized I could now start making the kind of jewellery that I really wanted to wear – unique, sometimes edgy but always elegant, pieces showcasing beautiful semi-precious stones. In the corporate world that I work in, my jewelry is a way of differentiating myself and expressing my personality.

I am not a chain store fan and never have been, always preferring artisan and unique over mass-produced (who wants to look like everyone else?). Gradually I began to put together a few pieces for myself, making the visions I had in my head a reality. Sitting at the table, surrounded by beautiful stones and endless possibilities quickly became my favourite place to be.

Gradually people began asking me if I please had any extra pieces for sale. And so it began.....and that is how I then discovered that I get even greater joy from sharing my jewellery than I do from wearing it myself (and I really love to wear jewellery!!).

In 2012 Big Skies Jewellery was officially born here on Etsy, thanks to the encouragement of a close friend. Every single item sold here in my shop is created by me, in my home, and is something that I genuinely love and would wear (if there were enough days in the year!). I specialise in unique statement necklaces and beautiful 'everyday' elegance. I personally source and select all the stones and materials. I love unusual gemstones and different cuts and shapes of stone. Balance and proportion are key to my designs.


THE PAST AND THE PRESENT...

I live in Johannesburg, South Africa – an exciting and vibrant place to call home. The name of my shop however refers back to where I grew up – a rural village called Brancaster on the east coast of England, an area famous for its dramatic “big skies”. Although Big Skies Jewellery is my present and future, it felt right that my shop should connect me with where I have come from and where my passion for art and nature began…..

Additional policies and FAQs
Every effort has been made to show the jewellery as accurately as possible. However, I am aware that colours and images sometimes vary according to the monitor they are viewed on.

All references to "silver" and "gold" refer to colour of metal and not product material, unless otherwise stated. If the component is sterling silver, silver plate or gold fill etc. this will be stated in the description.

Custom orders are very welcome. If making a custom piece, I will ask you to pay in full or pay a deposit, depending on the type of jewellery to be created. If you would like a matching set to any item please convo me with your request and I'll be more than happy to complete your jewellery set if I can.

My jewellery is produced in a smoke-free environment.
