Being allergic to lots of metals (including the buttons on some of my jeans!!) I hadn't worn earrings for years, so I decided it was about time I found something that I could wear. After doing some research I came across surgical steel, made a pair of earrings with my new favourite metal, and never looked back.
From this happy discovery Little Gems Jewels was born. Today I have lots of fun creating wearable hypoallergenic jewellery designs and hearing from my lovely customers who are pleased that they can wear earrings again too.
I am like a little Magpie when it comes to colourful gemstones. If something sparkles at me and catches my eye then I just have to make a pretty piece of jewellery with it.
I also love the fact that every gemstone holds its own little piece of magic. So when you are wearing a piece of gemstone jewellery it can help you a little in your day. In this picture I was lucky enough to be in holiday, so I am wearing a simple pair of Amazonite Gemstone Studs which not only look great in their lovely aqua blue, but Amazonite can also help to balance the emotions keeping me chilled out during my break.
I am a firm believer that jewellery should be wearable at all times and design each piece with that in mind. You should be able to wear my designs with a pair of jeans and a t-shirt, at work, or when you get changed to go out to a party in the evening.
I can also make bespoke pieces for that special occasion. If you see something you like in the shop but would like a different colour or design please do get in touch.
