Jet of the Day - OVGillies

 
 
Hi! I'm Olga & my shop Etsy is O V Gillies Designs Since I'm not really that good at talking about myself, I thought to take you on a little walk & show you a little of where the inspiration for my designs and the resulting designs come from.

Not surprisingly, living on an island (Isle of Arran, Scotland, UK), surrounded by the sea and having sailing as a hobby, the seascapes and life beside the sea are major influences. 
 
 
Midnight Sea Necklace
Aquamarine Necklace
Mariner Necklace

Mossy forests are another feature on this little island. Tree leaves fall, bracken on the hills dies away in autumn, but fir trees and moss covered ... well, just about everything, keeps the green colour around through the winter months. 
 

Malachite Necklace
Acorn Earrings
Green Pearls Necklace
All this beautiful green colour throughout the year would not be possible without ... water! & there's plenty of it, everywhere, & if you're a bit short, especially during our summer months, we'd be happy to send you some! 


Chalcedony Necklace.
Moonstone Necklace
Rock Crystal Earrings
I hope you found this little walk interesting.
Thank you for reading & checking out our team blog, & if you're looking for some wonderful Christmas presents, checkout the shops of our JET  team members http://www.etsy.com/teams/6429/jet-jewelry-on-etsy-team/members

All the best,
Olga Gillies
