NorthStone Wire Art and Gemstone Jewellery evolved from a passion for all things northern. Having grown up on the west coast of Scotland before moving to the south of England with work, holidaying and travelling all over the world, eventually the North beckoned again.
Lindisfarne pendant and chain
My first collection was the Lindisfarne collection which was inspired by the Holy Island itself, or should I say the cobbled causeway which attaches the island to the mainland. This inspired my signature chain, the Causeway Cobble chain which reminds me of the cobblestones leading across the sea.
From this initial idea came other collections from across the North: Lochs & Lakes, White Sands, Jorvik, Hadrian, amongst others, and the range has continued to expand. Each collection has its own 'theme', whether it is a particular movement of wire or colours or design element.
I have always been fascinated by history and how it has affected lives, landscapes and culture, and how art has mirrored the priorities of the day. Northumberland is full of history and dramatic coastlines, from Lindisfarne and Bamburgh Castle to the Roman settlements at Hadrian's wall.
If you see a design that you like but would prefer it with another gemstone, metal or colour, please contact to discuss.
