The shop can be searched by artist, colour, price and category and the images present so much better we are sure you will love it!! It’s been a great task for Kimmy to work on following surgery recently!

Jan Roebuck silver and copper cored art glass lampwork beads

Posted in Uncategorized at 11:07 am by kim

Although Jan has been busy with the Caloundra Lapidary Club and their recent involvement with the Sunshine Coast GEMEXPO, she has still managed to produce some gorgeous focal beads with silver, copper and titanium cores and caps. Some will thread straight onto a 1mm neckwire, others would need to be made up into pendants or necklaces before they could be worn. Check them out!

Goddess jewellery with crystals and chakra colours from Kimmyg

Posted in Uncategorized at 11:01 am by kim

Kimmy has put more focus into the new range of goddess jewellery she has produced. In addition to the powerful symbolism of the goddess as the divine mother, the semi-precious stones incorporated in the latest submissions also have significance as crystals and the colours used to compliment these miniature sculptures relate to the chakras. Have a look at these special pieces which appear at the bottom of Kimmy’s gallery page, for more information.
