Ever since I was a child I’ve been fascinated with gems and semiprecious stones. Our family regularly visited Castleton in Derbyshire, taking trips down the famous Blue John caverns, and I always returned home with a new gemstone to add to my collection. Fast forward thirty years and I still love looking at gemstones, turning them in my hands and feeling their weight. Whether in their natural state, or tumbled, each stone is beautifully unique and captivating.
Today I thought I’d share with you just a few pieces from my collection of gemstone jewellery, many of which came in the Belladonna Box which I purchased a year or two ago from a lovely online shop, Noctua.
