Objects old, vintage, hand made or upcyled, and old techniques with a modern twist

Gemstone spectrum 1

I did quite a lot of knitting and crocheting around Christmas and the new year, but have found the time to crack on with a couple of jewellery making projects lately. The colours of these natural semi-precious gemstones are certainly inspiring.

Gemstone spectrum 2

I most often work with faceted gemstones, but sometimes contrast them with tumble-polished stones like the ones shown here. I collected many of the free-form stones when I was a child (although I didn’t know how to turn them into jewellery- I just liked looking at them!), but have also acquired quite a few since then from friends. It’s amazing that nature can produce such beautiful and vibrant colours!
