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.

Autumn in cirencester October 14 2016

so my weekly treck to Cirencester is getting colder and darker, as I set of at 7am, across the Cotswold hills to the pretty little town, full of creativity and artistry. We set up at the Cornhall market for a 10 am start.I have lots of new stones in stock ready for this busy period, and its well worth coming along to have a peep.

Lapis Lazuli donuts as big as 40mm in diameter and great Moss Agate, Hematite and Amethyst.

In November I will be putting my display in the court Barn Museum in Chipping Campden, and it will be on display until January 7th, if you are around .

I am so lucky to live in such a beautiful place!
