This mosaic of clay beads from Ghana make up a beautiful bold statement piece. Finished with a sterling silver clasp. They are simple reminders of the simplest aspects of life; love, peace and happiness.
Clay beads date as far back as 1000 BC in various regions across the world. In Africa, clay beads were used as trade beads in countries such as Ghana and Mali. More recently in the hippie era they were also known as ''Love Beads'. Clay beads were traditionally used in prayer strands as well as in amulets as jewelry.

The Sky brooch is a must have statement piece. Wear the brooch the classic way on your coat or change it up and be creative and wear it on a head scarf, hat or dress.
Available via our bespoke services and inspired by an interpretation of Batik art married with Greek mythology and Egyptian mystery. The piece uses forming and fusing techniques with a rub over setting for the focal stone, which is Lapis Lazuli (Lazurite).
Lapis is the Latin word for "stone" and lazuli is the taken from an Arabian word, meaning "heaven" or "sky", since the sky is blue; therefore, it is the "stone of heaven" or "sky stone''. Lapis jewellery was also popular in ancient Egypt, and was a favorite stone for amulets and ornaments, and believe it or not, powdered lapis was used as eye shadow by Cleopatra.
