Athene designs and makes each piece by hand in her St Peter Port studio using sterling silver, 9ct and 18ct gold

Made with a wide range of precious and semi-precious stones, alongside found objects and recycled materials. Each piece is totally unique.

February Birthstone Jewellery

February’s birthstone is amethyst, which is a type of quartz, characterised by shades of purple or violet. 

Amethyst has been used in many different artforms over the last 3000 years.

Amethyst is reputed to be calming and aid with sleep. It is also said to bring peace and balance. The Romans believed it offered protection against alcoholic intoxication. 

 

March Birthstone Jewellery

 

Aquamarine is March’s birthstone.

The name aquamarine comes from the latin for seawater as the stones look just like droplets of sea water.

In folklore sailors kept aquamarine with them to keep them safe at sea. This stone is reputed to clear the mind and relieve stress.

Silver and Gold Ormer Collection

 

This is a handmade ‘charicature’ of an Ormer Shell. This is our 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.
