iridescentnl

 

This necklace is iridescent, being composed of kyanite blades, tourmaline and polished silver tubes, with a large tear-drop shaped labradorite stone in the centre, flanked by moonstones. It is very difficult to portray in a photograph, as all the stones glow with changing iridescence, depending on how the light falls on them. It is about 43 cms (17 inches) long, fastens with a handmade sterling silver 'Egyptian' clasp, and is as beautiful as can be. You can be sure it will be remarked upon every time you wear it.

Silver & Watermelon Tourmaline Necklace

 

 

The delicate beauty of watermelon tourmaline needs nothing other than the discreet highlighting of tiny pure silver beads. This necklace beautifully displays the three colours of the stone (green, pink, and black) in various shades while a tourmaline crystal wrapped in sterling silver forms the focal point. I have used slender sterling silver wire as the 'thread', extending it into spiralled wings on either side of the stone. The stones can be gently arranged to lie in alternate directions or, if you prefer, in one direction only. A handmade swan clasp forms an elegant closure, and the length of the necklace is approximately 48 cm.

Lady in red (and black) – stun everyone with this dramatic lava, coral, and silver bead necklace. The coral is environmentally sound, as it is mined, not taken from reefs, and the central lava bead has an attractive wavy shape. Finished with a handmade sterling silver fish hook clasp, the necklace is about 40 cm in length.

Turquoise Necklace

I do like the unusual! Here we have turquoise nuggets, rondels and oval beads teamed with sterling silver rondels and . . . guess what . . . spiny oyster shell beads. They have wonderful depth of colour and shine, and no spines! The clasp is handmade in a fish-hook style, and the necklace is about 46 cm (18") from end to end.

Gold Freshwater Pearl and 9 Carat Gold Necklace

This necklace is just so summer, and will look wonderful against lightly tanned skin. A dreamy mix of gold freshwater pearls and quartz beads with golden rutile threads running through them has been teamed with tiny 9 carat gold beads, and the necklace is finished with handmade 9 carat gold wire spirals and a handmade 9 carat gold fish hook clasp. About 46 cm (18") in length, it is delicate and beautiful.

Sugilite & Sapphire Necklace

 

Very rare sugilite cut as briolettes is combined with moonstones, two large, natural sapphires, sterling silver bicone beads and small silver beads to make this stunning piece. Sugilite comes from only one mine in the world (in South Africa), and lies deep, deep, deep below the surface, and so is becoming increasingly difficult to obtain. The lovely triangular cabochon is mounted on a handmade, lightly beaten open oval of sterling silver, and the necklace has a handmade sterling silver clasp. The end-to-end length is about 44 cm (a little over 17"), and the drop is 3 cm (just over 1").

Turquoise Necklace

 

For this striking necklace I poured molten silver into a cuttlefish mould to obtain the laurel wreath shape of the pendant, then bezel set a turquoise cabochon in the centre. The necklace, which has handmade sterling silver ends, comprises gorgeous turquoise nuggets contrasted with smooth rondels and tubular silver beads. It measures approximately 43 cm (17.5 inches), with the pendant having a drop of about 5 cm (2 inches). The handmade sterling silver clasp is in the fish-hook style, and fastens on a pretty handmade sterling silver heart.

£85

Sugilite Necklace

 

This is truly a stunning piece, featuring a large cabochon of increasingly rare sugilite set on a hand-forged diamond of sterling silver and suspended from a necklace of sugilite tube shaped beads flanked by sugilite rondels and long slim silver beads. It looks fabulously rich when worn, and is sure to be remarked on.
