Featured Products

October Birthstone Jewellery

 

Opal is October’s birthstone. This gemstone does not acually form as a crystal, but as the result of groundwater mixing with sillicon millions of years ago to form a stone. The silica spheres form a regular pattern, which creates the opalescence in the stone.

Opal is reputed to be soothing and cleansing. It is also thought to bring optimism.

 

November Birthstone Jewellery

Citrine is November’s birthstone, a pretty golden yellow stone which perfectly represents the colour of fallen autumnal leaves. 

Citrine is reputed to boost creativity and self expression. It is also said to bring joy and energy to the wearer.

 

Silver and Gold Ormer Collection

 

This is a handmade ‘charicature’ of an Ormer Shell. This is my version of the Ormer, pared down to it’s beautifully simplified basic characteristics.

The Ormer is a protected species in Guernsey waters and collecting them is strictly controlled. There are only a few ‘Ormering tides’ a year, when these delicate creatures are allowed to be taken from the beaches.
