The fixtures are high quality and I love the naturalistic progression of colors, from yellow to blue. Beautiful earrings that will go well with many items in my closet. Thank you!

About

jewellery for your personal legend

I love metal and gemstones but I also can't resist playing with beautiful glass and crystal beads. Nothing gets me more excited than working with feathers or silk or acrylic or resin pieces. If it's out there, I want to play with it! From dainty, simple, sweet pieces to luxurious, grand-dame statements dripping with precious stones, to funky, chunky, rough, out-of-this world ornamentation, we can make a piece that will fit your personal story.

Each of us is writing our personal legend as we go on our way through this world. Our energy and passion surrounds us and reaches out to others. The stories of so many wonderful people have impacted me and gone into my pieces, which, in turn, have become a part of other stories. I cleanse stones as I work with them so that they will be imprinted with YOUR energy. My workbench is surrounded and honoured by many divine expressions of the universe and I tend to say prayers and and mantras as I work - or I have them playing in the background. My intention is for every piece to be new and uniquely for you. They shine and you will shine.

Welcome into my shop. If you have an idea for a creation, please feel free to contact me and we will merge our stories to create something beautiful. Namaste. _/\_

Welcome to Wandering Moon Productions!

Each piece in my shop is made with love and care by me. I love creating jewellery that not only looks good, but makes you feel great when you wear it. With that in mind, I look for quality "ingredients" and design each piece to be beautiful and durable for many years to come.

I would absolutely love to hear from you if you have an idea for a custom piece. If you're looking for something for weddings, gifts or something in a particular colour or stone, send me a convo and let's get started! (:

I have enjoyed making each piece immensely and I hope you enjoy wearing them. Please stop by as often as you like and feel free to chat with me. I love hearing from you!

Wishing you love, light and joy,
~lara

SOME TIPS ON JEWELLERY CARE

Caring for jewellery is usually a simple task of wiping your pieces gently with a soft cloth and storing them in boxes with soft linings. Below is some more detailed information that may help you to care for your precious pieces.

General protection:

Wipe your jewellery with a soft cloth after you have worn it. Body oils, chemicals and dust can discolour or scratch certain gemstones. For "softer" gems (see below) you can use a gentle camel's-hair brush (or other brushes with very soft bristles) to take care of dust, as sometimes there may be little particles that can scratch your gemstones or dull glossy finishes. Also:

• Store your pieces in boxes or pouches lined with soft material.

• Keep pieces from getting sharp blows or scratches and keep away from chemicals, overexposure to sunlight and chlorine (may fade some stones or cause minerals and pigments to change colour), and extreme or sudden temperature changes.

• Be careful with nail polish remover, hairspray and perfume; don't get these on your jewellery.

Gemstones:

The durability of gemstones is measured as hardness and is based on a recognized standard called the Mohs scale. Gems that rate highly on the Mohs scale (such as diamond which rates 10) are highly durable and less likely to be scratched or to chip or flake. Gemstones with a rating of less than 7 may be susceptible to scratching or chipping. Here is the Mohs Scale:

#10 Diamond
#9 Corundum (Ruby, Sapphire)
#8 Topaz
#7 Quartz
#6 Feldspar
#5 Apatite
#4 Flourite
#3 Calcite
#2 Gypsum
#1 Talc

Here's an expanded scale:

Diamond: ................10
Syth. Moissanite:.......9.5
Corundum: ................9
Cubic Zirconia: ........8.5
Spinel: ..................8
Topaz: ...................8
Aquamarine: ........7.5 - 8

Some stones, such as pearls, turqouise and opals, are porous and absorb water. If you wash or immerse these stones remember that the water will evaporate but any chemicals or minerals will remain in the stone and may cause damage. (**Note about opals: They need moisture and periodically soaking them in pure water will bring back their lustre and shine.)

Some stones can be damaged by overexposure to sunlight. These include:

Amethyst (loses colour)
Ametrine (colour may change)
Aquamarine (loses colour)
Aventurine (if translucent, may lose colour)
Beryl (brown or orange may change to pale pink)
Citrine (colour may change)
Kunzite (may lose colour)
Rose Quartz (may become paler)
Smoky Quartz (may lose colour)

If you are using a commercial jewellery cleaner, please follow the manufacturer's directions carefully and only use the cleaner with stones and metal that has been specified. If you're unsure, check with the manufacturer or a jeweller before you use the cleaner on your piece.
