These earrings are made of Larimar which is also known as Stefillia’s Stone or Dolphin stone it is a rare blue variety of silicate mineral pectolite found only in the Dominican Republic. As is typical of the Germans these stones are beautifully cut and are smooth onion dome shape 15mm long. I have made ear studs out of frosted silver cubes making them 30mm long in total.
This is a blue Chalcedony gemstone necklace. Chalcedony belongs to the quartz group of minerals. It was used in ancient times by Egyptians, Greeks and Romans for jewellery and its name may have been derived from the Greek City of Chalcedony. This necklace is most unusual because the stone has been cut into graduated pear-shaped Briolettes which is a beautiful and elegant faceted gemstone cut. The gemstones are on a 21 cm string ranging and from 10 to 20mm each sone. They hang from an attractive adjustable silver chain to allow it to be worn at a variety of lengths from 44.5 cm to 49cm.
The sterling silver for this bangle has been textured with lace in my rollers to create the pattern before I began forming its shape. I always enjoy making bangles as it takes me back to my silversmithing day’s of hammering sheets of silver.
This bangle is 14mm deep the inner diameter is 6.5 cm.
These earrings are made of Amber which has been colour enhanced to give a vibrant red. Red is my favourite colour and I could not resist buying these as they are an amazing shade real eye catchers. As is typical of the Germans these stones are beautifully cut and are smooth elongated teardrops 30mm long. I have used frosted square silver ear studs and a small frosted ball to hang them from making them 50mm long in total.

Gathering these strands together are two large silver hoops. The strands lead through two silver cones and Moonstone beads leading up to the clasp at the back.
