I have been doing this style of necklace for a little while and as they are so popular I thought it was about time I gave the collection a name!
So here are a few photos of the Simplicity Collection necklaces
After years of looking and collecting little stones and pebbles wherever I go I stoped for a moment to reflect on this habit.
As a gemmologist and gem cutter I have an obvious attraction to gemstones. As an artist I always find myself looking at textures and colours wherever I am. As I combine the two together I find myself fascinated by the fact that a geologist will be able to tell you the history of a particular stone: what it is made off, how it was formed and how it got to the place you found it. On the other hand a more romantic person will tell you the story of a beautiful sunset and how the stone was chosen and carefully kept as a precious reminder of that moment.
Wether you are more interested in the scientific part or the artistic one or even a bit of both like me my question to you is what does this little stone tell you?
