My jewellery is made from Iona Greenstones with sterling silver settings in my workshop at Dervaig on the Isle of Mull.
I’ve chosen to use Etsy for my shop because it offers a very secure mechanism for any financial transactions between us. The jewellery prices will come up in US Dollars – please just click on the ‘prices’ icon on the left hand side to change prices to your own currency.
The rare and beautiful greenstones in my jewellery are found only on the Scottish island of Iona, mainly in the little bays of the south coast, including Columba’s Bay. The stones are sometimes known as ‘Columba’s Tears’. All the stones I use have been gathered on Iona by me and members of my family.
Each greenstone is unique and is a form of serpentined marble. The serpentine is noted for its translucence. For generations, local people and visitors to the island have prized Iona greenstones which are claimed to have general healing powers and to protect you from shipwreck, fire and miscarriage.
