Hi, I'm Rose, the designer/maker of all the gemstone and Swarovski® crystal jewellery available for purchase on the Bonnie Gems Jewellery website. For as far back as I can remember I have always been engrossed in some sort of craft work - knitting, crocheting, sewing and various arts and crafts interests but I have always been drawn to things that sparkle so an interest in gemstone and Swarovski® crystal jewellery was inevitable. My earliest memory of designing and making jewellery was as a young teenager - I used my Dad's clunky electrical pliers to adapt jewellery I owned but wanted to change in some way. I loved taking the jewellery apart, adding bits from other pieces of jewellery and redesigning them to my exact vision. I pretty much continued in this way (minus the clunky pliers!) for a number of years making jewellery for myself and as gifts for others. The gifts always went down very well and I started to receive requests so I decided to create my very own online store which has been great fun.
I use various mediums and techniques to create my jewellery. Over the years, I have read numerous books on the subject and have completed several courses to further develop my knowledge on jewellery making as well as clocking up hours and hours of practise perfecting my techniques. I use classic bead stringing, macramé, chainmaille, wire work, Viking knit and kumihimo techniques in my jewellery. My designs may include sterling silver component(s) I have purchased (e.g. clasps, ear wires, charms, connectors) to complete and enhance my designs. These components have been purchased from bullion dealers and reputable jewellery making suppliers. The gemstones are purchased from a few trusted companies who deliver quality, responsibly sourced gemstones. The Swarovski® crystals I use in my designs are purchased solely from dealers who are approved by Swarovski®.
Each created design will either be a one-off or limited edition piece. All one-off pieces will be labeled as such in the product description - all others will be limited edition designs. A limited edition piece means I will only ever make a maximum of 25 of this exact piece. I may however use the same gemstones or components used in previous designs or alter a previous design by using different gemstones or components. I will never mass produce my designs!
Your jewellery will arrive in an off-white gift box branded with the Bonnie Gems Jewellery logo - great if you're gift giving!
