Why semi-precious jewellery?

Over the years I have used many different types of materials to create my handmade unusual jewellery designs, wood, glass, acrylic, ceramic and paper are just of some of the materials that I have used to make my jewellery and I have loved working with all these materials but my first love is semi-precious stones.

There are many things that draw and attract me to natural semi-precious stones and the main attraction is that each of the stones and pendants that I use in my handmade semi-precious jewellery designs are a little bit different so each has its own unique design.

I create my jewellery from a large range of semi-precious stones like Tigers Eye, Black Onyx, Amazonite, Aventurine, Amethyst, Rose Quartz and many many more. I am constantly on the look out for new stones and pendants to use in my semi-precious jewellery designs. To compliment the natural beauty of the semi-precious stones I also add freshwater pearls and crystals to add that little something extra to the design.


Above you can see 3 example of pieces of handmade semi-precious jewellery where I have added freshwater pearls to the design. The first necklace design has been handmade from a combination of the semi-precious stones Amazonite and Blue Fluorite and I have used these two semi-precious stones to compliment the natural blue colours in the pendant that I have made from bands of the stunning Paua Shell. To bring the blue colours together I have spaced all of the semi-precious beads with a small peacock blue coloured freshwater pearls. This pendant necklace is a unique jewelelry designs with only one being handmade.

The second of the statement jewellery necklace handade designs has been handmade from a combination of semi-precious Red Aventurine and Blue Goldstone. I love the combination of these two stones with the bright orange colour of the semi-precious Red Aventurine looking stunning next to the deep dark blue of the Blue Goldstone. These semi-precious beads again have been spaced with small peacock blue coloured freshwater pearls.

The last of these statement jewellery necklaces has been handmade from the pretty pink coloured semi-precious Rose Quartz and to add some drama to this unique handmade jewellery necklace I have placed black coloured Rainbow Obsidian pendants between the Rose Quartz beads and as you can see this time I have used rich cranberry coloured freshwater pearls to space the semi-precious beads. The rich cranberry colour of the pearls looks amazing next to the black of the semi-precious Obsidian and they enhance the soft pink of the Rose Quartz beautifully. This necklace again is a unique semi-precious jewellery design.

 Why Semi-Precious Statement Jewellery ?

Statement jewellery is used a lot at the moment as it seems very fashionable but it depends what your definition of statement jewellery is. My semi-precious jewellery makes a statement and that is the pieces are unique and original all handmade here in the UK.

I think that when you label a piece of mass produced jewellery a piece of statement jewellery the statement that its making when wearing it is that you are someone that follows the crowds, needs to be apart of a group and I hope that my semi-precious jewellery designs are worn for different reasons.

I do not follow the latest trends with my designs but create handcrafted semi-precious jewellery pieces that compliment the stones and produce unique jewellery that will stand the test of time and will be worn in years to come and not just consigned to the back of a draw when the latest fashion trend is over.

All me pieces are unique one of a kind designs or limited edition pieces so if you choose to wear one of my unique and unusual semi-precious jewellery designs then you know that you are not going to see anyone else wearing the same design as yourself. By wearing my handmade statement jewellery you are saying to the world that you are unique and individual and you have the confidence to show the world your own uniqueness and you do not need to follow the crowd.


Above are 3 pairs of my unique semi-precious jewellery earrings all handmade from semi-precious stones but I hope that these unusual designs are a little bit different from other handmade semi-precious earrings that you have seen.

With the first pair of earrings I have used cracked agate beads in a yummy green colour and I have combined these semi-precious beads with silver fittings. I have used a large earring hook and from this I have hung an oval Sterling Silver hook. In the centre of this Sterling Silver hoop sits a round Cracked Agate bead and at the base of this statement jewellery design hangs a larger semi-precious cracked agate bead. These earrings are a unique jewellery design with only one pair being made and these are what you think of with statement earrings, large and showy but these earrings have a stylish and simple elegance and the best thing about this handmade statement jewellery designs is that they are unique with only one pair being handmade.

The second of these semi-precious jewellery earring designs is a pair that have been handcrafted from the soft pink coloured semi-precious stone Rose Quartz, again a unique design and with these I have added a lovely freshwater pearl in a soft cream colour that compliments the natural pink of the Rose Quartz perfectly. I have used a smaller and more delicate set of Sterling Silver earring hooks with this design showing that statement jewellery does not have to be large and bold, you can made a statement that you are feminine and pretty with this semi-precious jewellery design.

The last of the earring designs are larger in design but still simple and elegant. I have used large and long Sterling Silver earring hooks with these statement jewellery earrings and from these I have hung a large round semi-precious Black Cracked Agate and these have been set of with round beads of a bright Red semi-precious Coral. I have used Sterling Silver beads to spaced the semi-precious beads in this unusual handmade jewellery design.

I hope that you can see with these statement jewellery designs why I have chosen to use semi-precious beads and pendants in my designs and why I have chosen to call these pieces of handmade semi-precious jewellery statement pieces, because that is what they do Make A Statement and that could be look here I am unique and individual or I'm felling feminine and girly today. What ever the statement you are trying to make with your jewellery I hope that I have created a piece to compliment your mood.
