Exclusive artisan gemstone jewellery for adventurers, fairies, mermaids and the strong independent woman who just wants to be unique and beautiful!

Unique Gemstone Jewellery

Using only the best and most beautiful, natural gemstones, i create wire wrapped jewellery for those who want their gemstone jewellery to be unique, original and stand out from the crowd.

Sterling silver, copper, bronze and brass are some of the metals i use to create my gemstone jewellery.

I have a full range of birthstones for your birthstone jewellery and love to create custom pieces! 

I love to work with copper. The rich and earthy tones work wonderfully together with the gemstones i use in my creations. My copper gemstone jewellery will always come to you with care for guidance, helping you keep your piece looking beautiful for years to come.

As a contrast, my sterling silver gemstone jewellery resembles those beautiful winter mornings, sparkly and full of magic. I love to apply patina to my sterling silver gemstone jewellery, this gives the piece depth and creates an olde world,antique feel to the finished piece.

 

Although recently becoming popular, wire wrapped jewellery is not a new thing. Examples of wire and beaded jewellery made using wire wrapping techniques date back to thousands of years BC. The British Museum has samples of jewellery from the Sumerian Dynasty, found in the cemetery of Ur that contain spiraled wire components. This jewellery is dated at approximately 2000 BC.

Other samples of jewellery from Ancient Rome show wire wrapped loops (one of the important techniques in making wire wrapped jewellery). This Roman jewellery is dated to approximately 2000 years ago. In the manufacture of this early jewellery the techniques for soldering did not exist.

Later, as the technique for soldering developed, the wire wrapping approach continued because it was an economical and quick way to make jewelry components out of wire.

 

If you search the web you will find many artists practicing this ancient art of wire wrapping, each with their own individual style and movement. This for me is what makes wire wrapped jewellery so great. No two pieces will ever be the same!
