I used green apatite briolettes, faceted black tourmalated quartz beads with seed freshwater pearls to make up these tiny dainty earrings.

I have been fascinated with tourmalated quartz for a while now, just look at those needles of black – it reminds me of ice in the winter. Expect to see some more tourmalated and rutiliated quartz this Autumn in my jewellery designs.

These earrings will be part of my new ‘Folklore’ collection. What was that? I’m sure I saw a little imp just then in the garden….
