Online Jewellery Gallery
GillyB's online jewellery gallery is a collection of hand forged wearable art, created with imagination and passion to inspire, and featuring sterling silver, pearl, amber, diamonds, titanium, brass, copper and other unique metals, gems and stones.
Your own piece of collectible GillyB Design jewellery is available at our online jewellery store or if you are on the Sunshine Coast you can visit these retailers or our studio in Nambour, by appointment. We will also have pieces on display and for sale at the Suncoast Jewellery Expo on the 15th and 16th October 2016.
The majority of GillyB's handmade jewellery are unique, one of a kind pieces. These featured pieces, however, come with a story about how the elements, inspiration and design process came together to create something truly individual. Please contact GillyB if you would like to purchase any of these pieces.
Bits of twisted sterling silver wire are entwined around a gorgeous deep orange carnelian. The ancient Egyptians called Carnelian "the setting sun”. So Golden Orb seemed a fitting title. We also have a local spider of the same name hence the sculpted wire inspired by its web. This unique pendant is open to interpretation. A dot of 9k gold adds balance & interest to the oxidised silver wire. The pendant measures approx. 8cm from bale to gold dot & the carnelian is 3.5cm x 2cm.
"Jewel of the Ocean"
Our local beaches are a constant source of inspiration & in this necklace, the sparkling carved silver & shades of blue, gold & white in the pearls remind me of the many shades of the ocean & beach. This piece is part of an ongoing experiment, creating more modern contemporary jewellery from pearls. The hand carved sterling silver pieces measure 7.5cm x 2cm & the multi coloured blue, gold & white fresh water pearls have been individually knotted. The necklace measures 75cm in total.
"Lagoon of the Forest"
A beautiful apple green Australian chrysoprase makes for a gorgeous centrepiece to this reticulated textured sterling silver pendant. Lots of texture & depth surround the cool green stone. Chrysoprase is used as a shield or protector from negative energy. If used in jewelry, Chrysoprase should only be set in silver & has more power carved in the shape of a heart. It promotes joy & happiness, whilst healing the heart from depression & anxiety. The stone measures approximately 2cm x 1cm & the total pendant is 6cm x 2cm hanging from 46cm sterling silver 46cm. The entire piece has been treated with black patina & rubbed back adding depths to the piece like rocks around a tranquil pool of green.
