I was inspired by alchemical processes while making these-- the peridot reminded me of tiny water spirits, called Undines in the 16th century alchemical writings of Paracelsus.
Peridot is said to be a protective stone, corresponding to the heart chakra.
All my jewellery is made by hand by my partner Mike and myself in a converted 18th century naval school on the wild North coast of Scotland. All pieces come gift wrapped.
