Handmade natural British gemstone & sea glass jewellery
Unique men's and women's silver jewellery, handmade individually in North East England from natural, untreated British gemstone, Northumbrian sea glass and sea pottery. The stone and gemstone is part of Northumbria’s rich natural geology, whilst the sea glass, evidence of our region’s long industrial and glass-making heritage, has been shaped and frosted naturally over many years by the North Sea's tides. These are collected by hand in the region of Northumbria and along its beautiful coastline
The natural stone and gemstone in Northumbria Gems jewellery includes British quartz, carnelian, agate, jasper, and a semi-precious apatite. I handcraft the raw stone into cabochons and set these in sterling silver earrings and necklaces, rings, bracelets, and brooches. Some quartz and flint is polished in its original shape. The Northumbrian sea glass comes in a variety of colours, some rare, and I carefully collect the best pieces for my sea glass jewellery. I am now making jet jewellery, handcrafted from genuine Whitby jet from the North Yorkshire coast. This is sourced from an established Whitby supplier.
My new copper jewellery includes plain or rustic hammered men’s or women’s copper bracelets. These bracelets are made to order in several widths and sizes, hand forged in the north-east of England.
Each piece of natural gemstone, sea glass and copper is lovingly transformed into Northumbria Gems jewellery, for yourself or an original jewellery gift.
I am regularly making more pieces, so please visit any time to see what's new.
