Silver Stepping Stones

Wouldn’t it feel good to know that the next step you take is the right one, that it’s taking you in the right direction?

I’m passionate about creating compass jewellery – I love the way it symbolises life, the paths we choose and changes we embrace – and navigating this last year has certainly brought a new perspective on life.

At times I’ve felt overwhelmed by it all but, thankfully, at the same time what’s really important has become clearer. Living life somewhat differently, hopefully for the better, I’m still learning and finding my way.

Are you, like me, taking new and alternative steps in an uncertain world?

If you are, then I hope you’ll like that I’ve created some silver stepping stones.

Inspired by the hefty, grounded boulders in the riverbed that help us find our way, one step at a time, across the strong current swirling all around us.

Learning something new

You may have noticed rather a lot of sparkly stones set into these stepping stones pendants and all I can say is that I’m excited to be doing it!

Flush setting, also known as gypsy setting, is a skill I’ve been wanting to accomplish for a long time, so this year I decided to master it.

Making jewellery is like a wonderful journey, partly because there is always so much to learn. Each of its many facets opens up possibilities for new creations, each new skill brings the ability to add a different dimension to our creativity.

I’d held on to the belief that I’d never be able to set stones this way but, as I’ve said, this past year has given me time to reflect. Not surprisingly, I realised that my limiting thoughts were the only thing getting in the way!
