Profile for WhiteleafJewellery
Greetings! My name is Emma, and I am a nature lover.
In my jewellery-making, this translates to a love of semiprecious stones that look like what they are: lumps of beautiful rock, pulled out of the earth. I tend to use undyed, unfaceted stones, rather than stones that have been highly refined and cut (though those are beautiful too).
As a vegetarian with vegan sympathies, I don't like to use real pearls, so I go out of my way to find irregularly shaped faux pearls that will imitate the stunning, organic beauty of freshwater pearls.
I also try to use imitation leather, rather than genuine leather, in consideration of those who would rather not wear animal skin. Where I do use real leather, it is from upholstery off-cuts or colour samples which would be thrown away if I did not turn them into something beautiful.
Ironically, the imitation versions of pearls and leather are often more expensive – and harder to find – than the genuine stuff, so please bear this in mind when making your selection. (Vegans who have difficulty finding commercially made foods that are truly vegan will understand!)
I have a second shop here on Zibbet: Silverlight Jewellery – www.zibbet.com/SilverlightJewellery – for 'soft gothic', romantic and bohemian jewellery.
I have a blog at http://silverlight-whiteleaf.blogspot.com/. There I showcase my work, the work of other artists, business tips, and the wisdom of the ages.
