So, it has been a while.
Since I've been gone I've been collecting colours - amassed a crazy amount of hues, some of which, I will incorporate into my next collection. With the very grey spring we've had I buried myself in gemstone books to satisfy my thirst for vibrancy and bling. I looked at all kinds of stones with their four Cs (colour, clarity, cut and carat), history and make-up. From the most lively of colours to the more demure ones I found myself drawn to rose quartz, labradorite, aqua chalcedony, ametrine, amethyst & white topaz.
Until we start melting metal and setting stones - I would love to hear what your favourite stones are.
