My favorite stones,the ones I feature most in my handmade artisan jewelry, are moonstone, pyrite and labradorite. The moonstone is characterised by an enchanting play of light, a phenomenon known as ‘adularisation’. In earlier times, people believed they could recognize in it the crescent and waning phases of the moon. In India moonstones are regarded as ‘dream stones’ bringing the wearer beautiful visions at night. Good stones are cut to reflect the natural shimmer of the crystals and are truly dreamy. I use them in a number of my handmade jewelry designs but a favorite are the rings I made for my daughter and me, signifying dreams that come true.
