The shop I sell my jewellery in said they would be interested in trying to sell a few Sterling Silver pieces. Armed with enthusiasm I bought a few supplies along with beads in Rose Quartz, Fluorite and Aventurine. I have loved semi-precious stones since a family holiday when I was about 8 and my parents took me to a shop which was filled with them. I was just mesmerised with them; their shapes, colours, textures – it was better than being in a sweet shop. From that day I sat with my little information cards and tub of stones and learned which was which and where they were from. My favourite stone is Amethyst possibly because my favourite colour is purple but that could easily be the other way round (note to self – buy Amethyst beads!)
Here is what I came up with –
The beads and silver are so shiny and very pretty – it was such a delight to work with them.
