When I design earrings, I like to go for organic and raw gemstones, as I feel this creates a different kind of interest and beauty in my designs, as life is not perfect, so why should my jewellery be?I came across two types of natural raw green quartz gemstones, when I visited a Rock n Gemstone show in Harrogate earlier this year.
I had a number of ideas of how was the best way to incorporate them into my handmade jewellery designs, and although I have made a couple of earrings with onyx, I had not got any further, until now.
I just want to show off their natural raw beauty, so I kept the designs clean and classic.
I also decided not to try and match them, creating a set of asymmetric earrings.
Quartz is known as THE master healer and will amplify energy and thought, as well as the effect of other crystals.
