    • This is such a charming, delicate necklace in pastel hues, but with a slight bite of fuchsia colouring in the tourmaline briolettes.  The tourmalines are 7 mm x 4.5 mm.
    • These alternate with faceted cylinders of translucent aquamarine (8 mm x 3.6 mm), while at the end of the necklace the aquamarines continue to enable the necklace to lie flatly.
    • Aquamarine is the birthstone of March.
    • The gemstone aquamarine is a blue/green member of the Beryl family (while emerald is a green member). Its name comes from the Latin word aqua, meaning water of the sea, as the crystal stone resembles the sparkling colour of water in the Mediterranean.
    • This gemstone is mined mainly in Brazil, but can also be found in Nigeria, Madagascar, Pakistan and Mozambique.
    • Tourmaline is the alternate birthstone for October. First discovered by the Dutch traders off the West Coast of Italy in the 17th century, yet the name tourmaline comes from the Sinhalese term “turmali” which was the name given to all coloured crystals on the island of Sri Lanka.  The gemstone comes in pink, red, green, blue and multicoloured.  It is not a single mineral but a group of minerals related in the physical and chemical properties.  It is mined in Sri Lanka, Brazil and Africa.
    • I have used a silver toggle clasp.  Toggle clasps are easy to use and secure. My silver name label is attached at the clasp.
    • The necklace comes, like all my necklaces, with it's own colour co-ordinated silk brocaded pouch bag, made by a Shanghai tailor.
    • Length 46 cm

    • Two strands of faceted emeralds interspersed with vintage 18 ct gold beads from India
    • gold on hardened resin from Afghanistan (6.7 mm)
    • faceted emeralds, (ranging from 6.5 mm down to 2.8 mm)
    • antique 14ct gold and emerald crescent moon set with emeralds (3 cm)
    • The Victorians were terribly romantic; the crescent moon represents spirituality. But it also is a glorification of the Feminine Moon Goddess, which is a hint at a new relationship. Emeralds signify hope and the God of love, Venus
    • 14 ct gold clasp

    • I was enchanted by this delicate antique Art Nouveau brooch, circa 1890-1910, which I altered to a pendant to be worn on the side of the necklace.  As a brooch, it was lost.  As a pendant, it has a new importance.  It is a 10K  gold oval, slightly curved, decorated with soft green enamel leaves, and set with two tiny seed pearls and a garnet in the centre. It is 1½ inches long (3.5 mm) by 1 cm wide.
    • I have tried to create a necklace that would reflect the charm and lightness of the brooch and its detail by braiding a strand of pink, faceted, natural garnets (3 mm) with two strands of soft celadon coloured natural aventurine beads, also 3 mm.
    • To set off the antique piece on either side of the pendant are two vintage, handmade 18K  gold on hardened resin beads (6 mm) from Afghanistan, and two tiny natural cultured freshwater pearls (4 mm) to echo the seed pearls in the pendant.
    • A gold on silver toggle clasp has been chosen because they are easy to use and secure.  My silver name label is attached at the clasp.
    • The necklace comes, like all my necklaces, with it's own colour co-ordinated silk brocaded pouch bag, made by a Shanghai tailor.
    • The necklace is 20 ½ inches long (52 cm)

    • This stunning, simple necklace of graduated, faceted Columbian emeralds (from 9mm down to 2.5 mm) is heightened by the addition of a lozenge -shaped  pendant  of gold on silver and inlaid with tiny, rose –cut diamonds and emeralds. The striking, swirling design of the gold plays wonderfully against the sparkle of the diamonds and emeralds. The pendant is 1 ¼ inches long (3.5 cm), and ¾ of an inch wide (2 cm). 
    • The pendant has been crafted in Jaipur, India, where so much exquisite jewellery is created.  The two 18K gold, etched beads in the middle of the necklace are vintage, and also made in India in the traditional way of sheet gold on hardened resin.
    • The clasp is a 14K gold toggle clasp.  I prefer using toggle clasps because they are easy to use and quite secure.
    • The necklace comes, like all my necklaces, with it's own colour co-ordinated silk brocaded pouch bag, made by a Shanghai tailor.
    • The necklace is 19 inches long or 48 cm. With a 1¼ inch pendant drop

    • Antique Victorian 15 kt gold marked Chinese pendant (3 cm x 1.5 cm) encrusted with seed pearls forming the Chinese characters of good fortune and long life
      antique etched gold beads from India
    • 2 strands of small baroque egg shaped pearls, one interspersed with 18 ct gold beads from India
    • Vintage (now rare) 18 ct gold on hardened resin beads from Afghanistan  (7.7 mm)
    • These Afghan beads (now rare) use ancient techniques. The Afghani have been crafting gold for centuries. When Alexander the Great came to Afghanistan in 330 BC, his people brought many skills, one of which was working in gold. Like the Romans, centuries later, a yellow, 18 ct gold was used. But one of their techniques was to take sheet gold and work it onto hardened resin and then decorate it accordingly. This handiwork and the yellow gold colour give the necklace warmth and character and complements the gems. Sadly, these are now rare beads. Like all antiques, the supply can cease

    • This enchanting little sterling silver bird is made in Tibet and inlaid with turquoise. He is 2 inches across (5 cm) and 1 inch high (2.5 cm) and 15.5 mm deep.
    • Birds play an important symbolic role in Tibet because they travel in 3 of the 5 traditional elements: earth, air and water.
    • The bird hangs on a necklace of natural Chinese turquoise beads of 8 mm, with some carved turquoise beads (8.8mm) showing the” Shou” character for long life.
    • The silver beads have been woven by the Karen hill tribes in Thailand. Karen hill tribe Fair Trade silver is nearly 98% pure silver.  I mostly choose to use their silver because each piece is like a miniature bit of sculpture, individually crafted and created.  I know that artisans in Northern Thailand produce this unique silversmithing in small villages, involving whole families in the process.  Their work is fairly paid, and as a result, their beads are much more expensive. But a family is supported and wonderful beads and jewellery are produced in high quality silver.
    • I have used a silver toggle clasp.  Toggle clasps are easy to use and secure. My silver name label is attached at the clasp.
    • The necklace comes, like all my necklaces, with it's own colour co-ordinated silk brocaded pouch bag, made by a Shanghai tailor.
    • The necklace is 20 inches long (50 cm) with a 1 inch pendant drop (2.5 cm).

    • This is indeed an antique Victorian 14K gold pendant, set with a soft coloured citrine.  It has been designed in the Rococo style, typical of the tastes of the Victorian in the mid to late 19th century.  The Rococo revival was favoured throughout the 19th century.
    • With its delicate swirls of gold, with an almost organic liveliness, the pendant encases a faceted pale citrine.  The pendant is 1 ¼ inches long (3 cm) and a ½ inch wide (1.5 cm), and a depth of 4.5 mm.
    • I wanted the necklace to reflect the delicacy of the pendant as well as the Victorian flavour , yet with a modern edge.  So I have used very pretty natural pink tourmaline briolettes (6 mm), interspersed them with carved citrine melons (7.4 mm) and then added the yellow gold of 18K beads,  (8mm) and (4.5 mm). These vintage, handmade beads are from India, made in the traditional, ancient  way of taking 18K sheet gold and shaping it over hardened resin.
    • I love using this gold because of its colour and the craftsmanship involved.
    • Tourmaline is the alternate birthstone for October. First discovered by the Dutch traders off the West Coast of Italy in the 17th century, yet the name tourmaline comes from the Sinhalese term “turmali” which was the name given to all coloured crystals on the island of Sri Lanka.  The gemstone comes in pink, red, green, blue and multicoloured.  It is not a single mineral but a group of minerals related in  the physical and chemical properties.  It is mined in Sri Lanka, Brazil and Africa.

    • This antique Victorian Celtic pendant, inlaid with various natural agates, is full of detail in the silver.  On one side, there is the buckle, a typical Scottish element.  On the inside rim, there is a tiny beading design. While the outside has bullet points. The ring has been inlaid with natural Scottish agates, including a tiger’s eye and a carnelian. At 1 inch in diameter and 3mm in depth, the pendant was once, in fact a small brooch, which I had altered to remove these features so that it could become a pendant.  It hangs on 3 mm carnelian beads.
    • The necklace itself consists of brushed sterling silver lanterns (8.5 mm) from India, faceted cylinders of natural carnelian (8 mm), and faceted cylinders of natural labradorite (9 mm), and natural chrysoprase discs (8mm). 
    • Handmade, etched, fair trade silver beads (8 mm)made by the Karen hill tribes in Thailand are interspersed throughout.

But a family is supported and wonderful beads and jewellery are produced in high quality silver.
    • I have used a Karen hill tribe silver toggle clasp, crafted by two twisted lines of silver.  Toggle clasps are easy to use and secure. My silver name label is attached at the clasp.
    • The necklace comes, like all my necklaces, with it's own colour co-ordinated silk brocaded pouch bag, made by the Shanghai tailor.
    • The necklace is 19 inches long with an inch pendant drop.
