    When I let go

    of what I am,

    I become

    what I might be.

    My Violette ring is an ode to daydreams...

    One of the first rings I ever bought myself contained an amethyst.  It was sterling silver and absolutely ordinary, but I loved it and wore it everywhere.

    I was wearing it as a wide-eyed 16 year old when I spent the day at a master jeweller's studio, desperate to one day become a jeweller myself.  I absorbed every glorious detail as I watched them work, marvelling at how they could create such beauty from metal and stone.

    One of the jeweller's pointed out my ring and asked whether I had made it myself.  

    I laughed and said, "No!  I couldn't possibly make anything like this!"  

    He smiled, and said, 'It's easy, of course you can make it!' and carried on with his work.

    I wondered, and I waited; and though I put my dream to sleep for many years, it was always there in my heart, patiently waiting until I was ready.

    The language of flowers states that violets are for day-dreaming.   I couldn't think of a more fitting name for this ring.  

    A ring upon which to ponder and dream...

    One day ...

    Maybe ...

    Could I? ...

    These oval cut amethyst are richly hued and so very beautiful.

    Set in eco-friendly recycled 14k gold, I handcraft the entire setting from raw materials...a golden home lovingly made for your treasured gem.

    Amethyst is the birthstone for February.
