Bespoke Gemstone Jewellery - Made Specially for You

I’m a big fan of making bespoke jewellery for people. It feels so special to work with a customer to actualise their dream piece of jewellery. If you see something in my shop and think you’d like it made in a particular style to suit you, please get in touch. Maybe you want one of my designs made in gemstones that are symbolic to you, like you and your partners birthstones or the birthstones of your children. I especially love to create a design for someone for a talisman or amulet they would like to wear as a symbol and reminder of something they are trying to manifest in their life.

The ring above was designed with a customer around the two beautiful tourmaline stones she picked from my collection. She treated herself to a special ring for her 40th birthday. The band is sterling silver with 9ct gold bezels and accents. I love the combination of gold and silver.

The 18ct gold chrome diopside earrings above were made specially for my mother as a (very belated) birthday gift! A bonus of having a jeweller for a daughter is the lovely gifts you can get…the downside is that she often takes way too long to make them for you!! Oops!! These earrings are designed in the style of my new gemstone Pebble collection, more of those pieces to come soon to this site. I can make these earrings with any gemstone you’d like.

Above are a pair of 18ct gold Totem earrings. These drop earrings were commissioned for my customers wife as a lovely surprise gift to celebrate the birth of their 3rd child. The tsavorite garnet, aquamarine and rhodolite garnet are the birthstones of each of their 3 children. I felt very honoured to be chosen to make these and loved making them. My Totem design can be made in any gemstones you desire. I love this design as earrings. I usually make my Totem’s as necklaces seen here.

amethyst citrine green tourmaline yin yang necklace.jpg

This amethyst, citrine and green tourmaline necklace was designed for a customer looking for a talisman to help him call peace and calm into his life. He said that he wanted something in my style that captured a yin/yang symbolism, one of balance. Amethyst symbolism has long been one of peace and connection with the divine, so this was the first gemstone to come to mind for this design, capturing the “yin” energy. Citrine is symbolic of “yang” with it’s empowering and energising golden hue.

I’d love to hear from you if you like my style and would like to have a special piece made for you or for a gift. Contact me here to chat more. I have some gorgeous gemstones that I’ve been collecting over the years but can also try and source anything you are looking for.

Jewel of The Month - Goddess Totem Necklace

I'm a bit of a donut when it comes to keeping track of time! I think it must be something about working from home and never knowing what day of the week it's resulted in me not even knowing what month it is! Ha! My Jewel Of The Month blog was originally intended as a  monthly thing but, well, that ain't happened! So let's just say it's something I do SOME months! It's boring to be predictable, eh?!

The main inspiration behind my Totem necklaces was the symbolic way in which jewellery used to be worn. I wanted to design a collection of talismans to aid people in calling in certain states of mind or emotions. I, personally, wear certain pieces of jewellery as symbols to remind me of where I'd like to be mentally and emotionally. These jewels, when my gaze falls on them, serve as prompts to shift my mental focus over to the feeling I'm wishing to manifest in my conscious mind. 

My jewel for October is my Goddess Totem necklace. It's in a rich, luxurious combination of glowing tanzanite and magical star ruby. I designed this necklace with the intention of whipping up inside the wearer a sensation of sensual Goddessness! You put this one-of-a-kind necklace on and step confidently into your divine feminine incarnation. There's something so sexy about these colours together and the gold enhances the richness of the colours. I love the symbolism of both stones and thought they would work beautifully together in ushering in a Goddess mindset. Ruby is a stone that symbolises passion and tanzanite symbolises heightened spiritual growth. A true Goddess attitude combines both passion and a spiritual awakeness, a beautiful balance of lower and higher chakras.

Is there any feeling or attitude you'd love to be reminded to embody in your life? We can all tap into so many different sides of ourselves at will, but it helps to have a reminder. Jewellery is the prettiest way of guiding us to make these shifts in our attitude. If you imbue a talisman with a particular meaning, it will always create a shift inside when you put it on, even if only a subtle, subconscious one. I love making bespoke pieces for people so get in touch if you would like your own unique Totem necklace designed to help you call in a particular attitude or perception shift. I'd love to work with you and design a necklace to fit your desires using the perfect gemstones for your tastes.
