Turquoise and Chrysocolla Sterling Silver Cuff Bangle

Turquoise and Chrysocolla Cuff Bangle

This cuff bracelet was a one-off remodelling job I did for a lovely client using an old cuff which was precious to her but unfortunately broken. It’s a good reminder to be careful when putting on your cuff bangles not to squeeze or stretch them and over-stress the metal!

The existing stones were (probably) turquoise, and the addition of chrysocolla adds interest and texture to the piece.

It was great working with Juliet, and we discovered quite a few uncanny coincidences that made the experience even more special! Thanks!

What a wonderful thing it is to have kindred spirits in this world. One of them for me is a very dear bestie who I have been friends with since first grade.

This year, I felt she needed to soar among the clouds – so when I came across this cleverly constructed agate and turquoise doublet cabochon, it was just the thing!

I hadn’t made a brooch before, so this is a prototype really – I’m hopeful that it will withstand the test of time!

After seeing a mohave green turquoise ring I created for another client, Karen fell in love and wanted one of her very own!

I was able to source another mojave green turquoise cabochon, and create this ring.

Rosie, one of my gorgeous repeat customers, asked me to find her a stone similar to this ring that I made for myself. I couldn’t find one exactly the same, but I did find this one.

Setting stones with corners presents a challenge, and I’m really pleased with the way this one turned out.

I enjoyed making it – thanks again Rosie! 🙂

Sterling Silver and Amazonite, Chrysoprase, Topaz, and Turquoise Infinity Pendant

My lovely friend Margaret is an artist, and I met her when she commissioned me to create this coherent wave pendant for her to wear to her art exhibition, Bliss.

The symbol is for infinity, of course, and also represents the number eight, which is a very lucky number in Asia and kept cropping up throughout Margaret’s painting journey!

We selected the turquoise, chrysoprase and amazonite as they were such delicious water colours, and I added the sparkling white topaz which reminds me of the sparkling water too.

Turquoise is one of the traditional birthstones for Sagittarius. It is believed to be the symbol of friendship, to protect the wearer from negative energy and to bring good fortune.

Another stone traditionally assigned to Sagittarius is Topaz. Topaz is believed to be very calming and soothing, and to be able to assist with problem solving.

November - Topaz

Key words for people born under the sign of Sagittarius are: Free spirit, carefree, love of movement and cheerful. Sagittarians often suffer wanderlust, both in body and mind.

Sagittarius rules the hips, thighs, liver, and sciatic nerve.
