Gemstones

I use a variety of gemstones (semi-precious stones) in my work. The gemstones used are based on birthstones, popularity or the fact that I like the colour. They can be in a round bead form or my personal favourite, in chip bead form.

Using gemstone chip beads means that I can use the same designs/colours in my work but I know that the look will be different – chip beads come in various shapes and sizes unlike the uniformed look of the round bead.

Below is a list of just some of the gemstones that I have/do use in my work.
