The softest clouds in the bluest sky... that was what came to mind as I worked on this silvery piece. Subtle gleaming moonstones, blue lace agate and chalcedony, rose quartz, creamy keishi pearls and freshwater pearls in ivory, silvery pink and oyster grey. Centrepiece is a vintage-style filigreed starburst crystal with an opalite blue swarovski crystal set in antiqued silver. A lovely combination of periwinkle blues, blush pinks and pale silvers.

One of my favourites, Psyche's gorgeous open hearts are studded with brilliant tiny czs and the plump clusters of freshwater pearls shade from peach pink to cream to light silver then gunmetal grey. Finally a pair of beautiful vine-like-capped London blue topaz brioletettes. Ear hooks are sterling leverbacks woth bezel-set blue topaz. Ok I think I need to make one more pair for myself now.
New releases finally!
First part of my ancient mythology and artifact-inspired "Theologia Mythologica" collection,
with the Ambrosia earrings to blaze the way.
(I have a feeling this will be an ongoing series)
Ambrosia or "food of the gods" features these breathtaking ruby briolettes from my new gemstone stash, clusters of jewel-toned rondelles (green onyx, apatite, amethyst), all from fancy but petite gold vermeil cz studs.

I don't accept customisation requests really, as they prove to be more challenging (talk about pun!) and hence stressful. However an old schoolmate contacted me about a special gift for his pink-loving ballerina missus sometime back so I bravely took it on. Romantic blush pinks and soft whites... thank you for trusting me with this J!

This pair of flower nymphs are a lovely lilting sight, with petite rhinestone fleurs and gemstone clusters in sorbet shades of pastels. Stones include amethyst, peridot, apatite, moonstone, zircon, freshwater pearls and finished with pink topaz briolettes. Earrings measure approx. 5cm in drop length with 14k goldfill components.
Seductively exotic in dark scarlets and smoky greys , Opium Rose evokes a sense of luxe opulence with its array of rubies, deep garnets, pink topaz and glistening labradorite. The earrings studs are a vintage-style milgrain rose motif accented with tiny rhinestones and the drop measures approx 4cm from the studs. Sultry and definitely show-stopping!
Historia Naturalis showcases my penchant for lilting pastels in blush pinks and soft peaches against a calming palette of cloud white and pale lilac blues. The centrepiece is a large vintage enamel white flower with rhinestone anthers, and the pendant is a beautiful smooth large rose quartz briolette with goldfilled accents. Forming the necklace are pretty ivory and pink roses, moonstone and beryl nuggets, white pearls, and more moonstone rounds. A romantic statement of femininity :)

What do you do on your birthday?
Why, take lots of funny pictures with your little girl of course!
Even though your big brother and you insist daddy is forever 20 while you put way too many candles on mommy's birthday cake, I still love you guys very much. And while we are on the topic... what happened to my card this year? And will I ever get to blow out the candles on my cake again?
