Day 18 of #marchmeetthemaker : Inspiration
While I do find inspiration in my beautiful surroundings here in Cornwall, it is always ultimately all about the gemstones.
Looking closely at the stones you can usually tell what type of jewellery they will become part of; whether its something simple to show off the tiny facets, flashes of colour or unique cut, or a more complex design to allow colours or textures to play off each other.
I enjoy the serendipity of playing with different combinations and ideas and never cease to be awed by these incredible gemstones. It's a magical collaboration between mother nature and humankind.
