I have a huge passion for gemstones and gain great satisfaction in selecting individual crystals and having them set into stunning, unique pieces of handcrafted silver gemstone jewellery.
I delight in sourcing the gemstones – choosing the ones that ‘call out to me’, whether they be rare, deep of lustre or an unusual form – and then taking the time to tune into a crystal and develop a silver design for each individual piece. Sometimes a gemstone needs only to be encased in a simple silver band, allowing the stone’s energy to speak for itself; other times, the silver follows the lines and edges of the stone, turning the gemstone into a truly distinctive piece of bespoke jewellery.
“I have been buying my jewellery from Gem Enchantment for years. All for favourite pieces are hers! Her jewellery is beautiful and I treasure it. I love the fact the some of the settings are so unique. I get compliments all the time when I wear her pieces. Julie is so helpful and lovely too!”
“I was delighted to find this Pendant online as it ticked all the boxes as the gift I’d imagined for my sister! Julie responded very quickly to my request sending it as a next day signed delivery… for free! It really is a beautiful Pendant and I’m ‘over the moon’ with it and the presentation box and gift bag! Thank you.”
“This is a really unusual piece and I can actually see the crystal structures growing through each other – It is great to have a truly unique pendant. It arrived swiftly, packaged really well. The coloured silky drawstring pouch is a wonderful gift to keep the pendant in. I have obtained crystals from Gem Enchantment and Julie over the last 20 years both online and at various exhibitions and I have never failed to be impressed by Julie, her crystals and the service.”
“I’ve had many lovely pieces of jewellery from Julie at Gem Enchantment, especially some unusual and beautiful rings. Two of my favourites are a ruby ring with a decorative setting, which I wear whenever I need energy, and a beautiful heart shaped aquamarine ring which always makes me feel uplifted. I’ve also bought a fabulous aqua aura pendant from her. As well as stocking a great range of jewellery and crystals, Julie is very helpful and knowledgeable, and will answer all your questions whether you are a beginner just learning about crystals, as I was when I first met her, or more experienced with them.”
Gem Enchantment began in 2000. I already knew I had a great love for crystals, but whilst exploring crystals at my weekly meditation Circle, I realised I also had a strong affinity to them. I took a crystal healing course with Melody, the author of ‘Love is in the Earth’ which served to compound my confidence and belief in myself. Subsequently, whilst helping at a Reiki stand at a holistic event, the seed was sowed… I had been looking forward to expanding my own collection of crystal jewellery, but I was disappointed at the selection and quality of jewellery available at the show.
Disappointment turned into motivation. I sensed I could provide better and I was guided to Bali. There I found great energy and exceptional quality of silver craftmanship, but the lack of variety of gemstones was limiting me. So, I travelled to India where I found the variety of gemstones I was looking for, but when I tried to get my designs produced, something was not quite right with the finished product. I decided that I would source gemstones in India and produce in Bali, to get the best of both worlds.
I have now been working with my silversmiths in Bali for 19 years. We have a great relationship; they understand and interpret my designs without fault. Both the craftmanship and quality of silver is to the highest standards enhancing each individual gemstones’ energy.
Family commitments have, for the last 10 years, limited my travels to just Bali. But as one door closes, another opens… I now source crystals at the Rock & Gem Shows that I exhibit at allowing me to make my designs with more unusual high-vibrational crystals, sometimes in their raw form, that are not often found set as jewellery. The Gem Enchantment collection has become even more unique and unusual.
I am very proud to be able to offer my customers a vast range of quality silver set gemstones, all presented with love.
I hope you enjoy. Julie.
