Announcing a New Line of Handcrafted Jewelry Available Online!
Jill Love’s Jewelry Now Online!
One of the biggest joys of owning and wearing jewelry from our gallery, is that each piece is totally unique. Even when created by the same artist, no two necklaces, earrings or bracelets are truly identical!
Yet in the past, it was this very originality that made it very difficult for us to offer our handcrafted jewelry for sale online.
But this is not true anymore – we have worked long hours with one of our most popular jewelry artists, Jill Love to create a special line of gemstone pieces that are both unconventional and yet available for sale all year long.
Jill Love Jewelry
Jill Love’s jewelry is inspired by her passion for gemstones, the mountains, the rivers and the ever changing colors of the sky that surrounds her home in Black Mountain NC.
By combining a variety of uncommon gemstones with sterling silver wire, she has created a signature line of custom-made necklaces and earrings that have an understated elegance yet are suitable for everyday wear.
Jill will create each piece exclusively for our online store using a pre-set selection of gemstones such as: Malachite, Hematite, Kyanite, Turquoise and Dalmatian Jasper. This way each custom-made piece will remain delightfully different yet be available online.
Malachite & Hematite with Sterling Silver
Malachite is a vivid green banded crystal that was used in paints and dyes from antiquity until the early 1800’s. It is said that Malachite can protect the wearer from accidents, bad business associations and guard children from unseen misfortunes.
Hematite & Amethyst with Sterling Silver
Hematite is a black to steel or silver-gray colored mineral, and is one of several iron oxides. It is said that Hematite stones have strong ‘grounding” energy and can create a calming effect, as well as helping the wearer develop concentration and focus.
Kyanite & Smoky Quartz with Sterling Silver
Kyanite, whose name derives from the Greek word kuanos sometimes referred to as “kyanos”, meaning deep blue. Famed not only for its blue beauty, Kyanite is also valued by some who believe it has healing properties.
Turquoise, & Red Jade with Sterling Silver
Turquoise is a rare blue-to-green mineral that has been prized as a gemstone for thousands of years owing to its unique hue. Turquoise is said to be a purification stone that allows the wearer to dispel negative influences or pollutants.
Dalmatian Jasper is found in Mexico… and it is a quartz based stone with spots of brown and black. The name Jasper means “spotted or speckled stone”, and is derived from Old French. Dalmatian Jasper is said to assist the wearer in breaking down barriers which allows them to move forward in life and discover their true purpose.
