This Pendant features a Fine Silver Moon-Gazing Hare.  It is

Set in a Sterling Silver Bezel with a Rainbow Moonstone Cabochon against a Black-Lip-Pearl Disk.

This piece is created by me in my Workshop in Cornwall.  It starts out life as Wire and Silver Clay so every Piece I make is unique.

The Rainbow Moonstone featured is an increasingly rare AA Quality Gem that has a beautiful Blue Glow.  The Black-Lip-pearl has an amazing iridescence.

Congratulations to June’s Winner Lisa Wilkinson

The Star Ring just won out as the piece most favoured by my Subscribers, although they all came close. 🙂

I will be in contact to arrange making the Ring for Lisa

This Month’s New Jewellery Piece

I’m going to create a limited amount of these Oak Leaf and Acorn Necklaces for my Website Subscribers and Facebook Page Followers.

The Acorn is Cast Sterling Silver and the Leaf is hand cut from Sterling Silver Sheet, Forged and Shaped. The Chain is a 16″ Sterling Silver Trace Chain. Each Piece will vary slightly as I will be Forging the Leaves individually. Size is 2cm X 1cm

In many cultures the Oak is sacred, and is often connected to legends of deities. The Tree signifies courage, inner strength, the power to determine our own destiny.

The acorn, as a seed, is also a symbol of growth and unlimited potential. The acorn, in its dormant state, reminds us that we, too need periods of rest/dormancy and periods of growth.

The Offer Price is £24 until Sun 9th after which I’ll be Listing it on Etsy at a higher Price. Please message me if you are interested. 🙂

The Mystery Of The Labyrinth

 If you’ve ever been to The Eden Project you would have seen the Labyrinth there.  It used to feature in a Celtic Attraction.  Sadly they no longer have a guide to how the various Trees were venerated by the Druids of Celtic Tribes of Britain.

Walking a Labyrinth is a very Meditative thing to do.  At the entrance you begin to contemplate an issue you might have; and as you walk you ponder all aspects of it until you reach the middle.  Once there you mentally drop the problem and walk away.  As you travel back along the Path you get a sense of distancing yourself from what was bothering you and you exit the Maze unburdened.

Well that’s the theory as taught me by the White Witch who used to be the Storyteller there. 🙂 I think it works.
