Sardonyx & Sterling Silver

Sardonyx & Sterling Silver
 Check out the website to learn about our upcoming Fall Fling with Kate Richbourg National Jewellery Educator/Artist.
This is a necklace by Flirt using Sardonyx and sterling silver. I am fond of the classic simplicity of black & white sterling jewellery.


Sardonyx is an onyx that is characterized by parallel lines of sard and different colored minerals. It is a distinct and dramatically banded variety of chalcedony composed of quartz layers. Typically found in black, brown and white layers. Metaphysically, Sardonyx is believed to improve memory and increase one's analytical talents. Mined all over the globe. The best stone is said to come from India.

  • Aquamarine & Fresh Water Pearls

    This fine necklace and earring set was custom made for a destination 
    wedding gown shop in Yorkville.
     It was one of a Collection of 12 designed for 
    LaFave Haute Couture/Yorkville/Toronto. 2006.

As a Health Care Practitioner as well as Jewellery Designer of Flirt, I am drawn not only to the beauty of stones, the physical attributes but also to the meta-physical properties.
Truth or not, stones have been used throughout the ages for their healing, spiritual and many other powers.
Aquamarine from GemSelectAquamarine is best known for its breathtaking range of blue colors and belongs to the same family as emerald (beryl). Aquamarine is colored by trace amounts of iron.
Aquamarine - Courage, Peace, Communication
