Birth Stones January 06 2017

Birthstones are precious or semi-precious gemstones that are associated with each month. In each case they are considered lucky for their particular months and for those who believe in such things their healing powers are heightened during these times.

Birthstones have been used since at least the first century as a way to give good luck on one's birthday. Gemstones are associated with each month and each precious stone has designated qualities associated with it.

The Traditional Birthstone list contains older birthstones and is sometimes combined with the modern birthstone list. These stones reflect societal birthstone traditions, heralding back to the 15th century. It can be noted that many jewellers have differing lists of traditional birthstones orignates from over a thousands of  years ago.

RHS Wisly, Craft and design Show hosted by Craft in focus April 14 2016

Flash back to the fun of Wisley craft in focus design fair.

Newbury Royal Berkshire Show September 14 2015

The craft tent at the Royal Berkshire Agricultural Shownear Newbury  is one of the largest I attend. It is housed in three vast marquees which are joined together with the best crafts stalls displayed either side. If you love craft, and are not far away, this is a great event and family day out.

I am finishing off the last bits of jewellery, and also starting to think about my Christmas packaging, as alas this is the time people  start to think ahead about presents.

Praying for mild weather as I plan to camp in my tent this weekend. I will add pictures from the show whilst i am there

.

 I have loads of these earrings made up in over twenty different stones , all made using sterling silver wire and findings.They are now on the website.
