Game Of Thrones.

Very very exciting that my Moth and Poppy Seed Head ring is being worn by one of the main characters Sansa Stark in the medieval fantasy TV series Game Of Thrones.
The ring has a silver Hawk Moth and a poppy seed head, the wingspan of the moth is 8cm, the moth rests delicately across your hand, looking towards the poppy seed head which grows up from inbetween your fingers.
The poppy seed head is darkened slightly to enhance the fine detail before the whole piece has a final polish.

The Queen's Diamond Jubilee.

What could be more majestic than our fabulous British Stag Beetle.
The British Stag Beetle is one of my favourite creatures, sadly in decline due to loss of habitat, they live is rotten decaying wood, so please leave as much of this habitat as possible in your gardens.

My garden has lots of insect friendly areas, and is now decked with bunting for our 4 day weekend celebrations, I hope you all have a wonderful Jubilee, full of friends, strawberries, tea and cake!

This neckpiece celebrates Britian's largest beetle, made in solid silver the beetle is an exact replica of life, his wing casings studded as a union jack using diamonds, rubies and sapphires.

The beetle is 5.5cm in length, I make him studded in garnets on a long chain, or with no stones, just a gorgeous large silver or gold beetle, all can be seen on my website.
Any stones can be set into the Stag Beetle on request.

Happy Jubilee! XX

Aquamarine for March

Aquamarine is the stone for March, one of my favourites, gorgeous uncut or in both faceted and cabochon cuts.

Aquamarine is from the Beryl family, and comes in fabulous shades of blues and greens.

Aquamarine from Latin, aqua marina, meaning 'Sea water.'

Historically the stone has been worn by fishermen and sailors for good luck and protection, it has also been associated as the stone of courage, easing fears, phobias and reducing stress.

Aquamarine looks gorgeous with silver and gold, and looks fabulous in a twig ring.......
