All jewellery on this website is designed and handmade by me right here in Scotland. I mainly work with genuine gemstones and sterling silver - the components used for each piece of jewellery is clearly stated under each product.
All items on my website are in stock and ready to be posted out in a quality white gift box and delivered free within the UK.
Hi, I'm Rose, the owner and designer/maker for Bonnie Gems Jewellery. 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 genuine gemstones 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.
Over the years, I have read numerous books on the subject and have completed several courses to further develop my knowledge of jewellery making as well as clocking up hours and hours of practise perfecting my techniques. I use various mediums and techniques when creating my jewellery - classic bead stringing and knotting, macramé, chainmaille, wire work, bead looming, Viking knit and kumihimo. 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 were purchased solely from dealers who were approved by Swarovski® but sadly Swarovski no longer sell loose beads/fancy stones that I can use in the making of my jewellery so when my stash runs out I will cease to use these fabulous products in my designs.
I will never mass produce any of my designs! Some of my designs may be one-of-a-kind and will be labelled as such in the product description, however, I may redesign a one-of-a-kind piece by using the same gemstones and/or components in a new design or keep the same design but change the gemstones and/or components.
Your jewellery will arrive in a quality, white gift box branded with the Bonnie Gems Jewellery logo - great if you're gift giving!
