Green stone jewellery, pink, black, white… When it comes to using rock to make jewellery, the options are endless.
The Scottish islands are not short of rock. From marble to gneiss and everything inbetween, they are most visible around the rocky coast lines and beaches – but they tend not to be too far under the ground either!
In the Isle of Tiree, the Isle of Harris, and elsewhere, island makers are using this natural and abundant resource to craft stone jewellery, bowls and even stone ice cubes.
If you like your jewellery natural and eco friendly, it doesn’t come much better than this.
