Our theme for the term on Tuesdays is on the use of magnets for clasps in jewellery, and as it is our firm belief that play holds the key to true innovation, today we played like kiddies in a toyshop!
Drawing from the deep recesses half-remembered facts on the laws of magnetic attraction – along with some cautions for pacemakers and credit cards – students were sent on a hunt to find the most unusual magnetic objects..
But for me none of these gems has the allure of Alexandrite, a spectacular stone that has the ability to change colour depending on lighting conditions. Blue-green in natural daylight, this remarkable gem turns pink-purple in incandescent light. It’s a magical night and day stone, truly a gem for the romantic heart.
So if you are looking for a gift that speaks romance and adventure, look for Alexandrite, choice of the tzars!

Reclaiming the power of the Snake Goddess, the Medusa collection combines leather and sterling silver into alluring coils that reflect the movement of the snake. Sharp points, hooks, rattling bone-like beads all combine to create edgy, powerful and seductive jewellery that can be worn in numerous ways on the body. These snaking coils can be twisted and manipulated to create unlimited sculptural and wearable forms that wrap around the hand, arm, neck, waist…all waiting to play with you.
