October Birthstones - Opal and Tourmaline

October has been associated with 3 gemstones: Opal, Jasper and Tourmaline.

while the gemstones associated with the zodiac are for

Libra (September 23-October 23) : Opal and smokey quartz
for Scorpio (October 24-November 22) : Topaz and Malachite

I have chosen to introduce you to Opal and Tourmaline.

Opal: Derived from the Latin "Opalus" , which means "Precious stone"

Opal was thought to protect the wearer from disease and to possess the gift of prophecy

They are found mainly in Australia, Mexico and the U.S.A

It is believed that they convey hope, innocence and purity. The Traditional Metaphysical Properties for the October Birthstone Opal are happiness, faithfulness, loyalty and confidence. The healing properties are reputed to be effective for health problems relating to the eyes and eye infections. The Opal is also used to enhance visualization, imagination, dreams and healing.



Tourmalines exist naturally in a myriad of colors: yellow, green, blue, pink, red, brown, black. Some even have bi-colored properties. A valued bi-colored variety of tourmaline, found in Brazil, is called the "watermelon."



Watermelon Tourmaline is a unique stone. It balances the yin and yang in the body. Wearing a slice of watermelon tourmaline will allow you to understand matters in a more balanced way. Watermelon tourmaline draws joyful and understanding love to you. Meditate with a slice of watermelon between your hands and understanding of the beauty of the universe may come to you. Watermelon tourmaline is reddish-pink encircled by green

Pennydog: handmade costume jewellery made from resin

Who are you and where do you come from?
I'm Kerry and I'm originally from East Yorkshire, but I have been living in
Leicestershire for over 4 years now, when I moved to go to university. I
live with my boyfriend of 5 years and our greyhound, Penny, whom my business
is named after.

Please tell us a little about what you make.
I make jewellery with resin, some unique, some replicable, but all with an
aim to appeal to a wide range of people, rather than a lot of resin
jewellery that you can buy that looks cheap and tacky. I also dabble a
little in photography, but haven't had time to indulge since graduating from
my course.

What do you enjoy making most?
I like making the ice range, it's simple to do and requires no sanding!

What are your main inspirations?
I take inspiration with anything I find. This time of year is great- I pick
up colourful leaves, acorns, feathers, seeds, all sorts really. I love the
colours and details in vintage and retro style fabrics too, I can't resist
them and use them in my retro range.

What are you currently making?
Loads! I have some swirled colour bangles, some earrings with feathers in,
some candy corn pieces for an online contact, some sycamore seed and pretty
leaf pieces all to sand, my entry into the Etsy UK September challenge to
finish and a bit of polishing to do too! I also need to photograph a
tutorial for an article I have written for Crafts Beautiful Magazine.

Can you make custom orders?

Definitely. I have just agreed to make a necklace for a lady who wants me to
use a dried mushroom specimen in a similar way to my nature range.

Where can we buy your work?

At the moment and until 13th October, my work is for sale at Plush Jewellery in Chichester, and more stockists are to follow shortly.

I will also be at the Handm@de fair in Oxford on November 9th. Online I sell on http://www.penny-dog.co.uk/ , http://pennydogaccessories.etsy.com/ and
