Abby looked into the ancient folklore surrounding precious stones, their believed meanings and importance in ancient times to inspire her new collection for us called ‘spun gems’.

Abby has created individual pieces of jewellery which hold precious stones safely inside a maze of silver wire, keeping the magic the stones are said to provide safe within the pieces of jewellery.
