Without doubt one of my favorite stones to carve is rose quartz. There is something about the beautiful soft translucent pink glow that radiates from within. It is magical and touches on the ethereal, there is a calmness to it and a feeling of gentle love. With this in mind I carved a very simple flower to embody this lovely energy and spirit of the stone. In the centre of the pendant is placed a very pretty pink spinel. The setting was finely made in 18K yellow gold.

The sakura (cherry) blossoms are a much honoured and treasured part of Japanese culture and life. Every year during spring the sakura trees bloom across the country with festivals and hanami (tree viewings) taking place. The five-petaled sakura flowers feature often in works and art and depict the concept of mono no aware, nothing lasts forever, the ofttimes wistful awareness of the transience of things.

This carving depicts several sakura blossoms clumped together on the ground. The wonderful soft glowing pink hues of this rose quartz are absolutely beautiful and gives the piece a calming peaceful energy.

Six chrysanthemum blossoms lay clumped together illuminated from within by the soft pink glow of the rose quartz. There is something about rose quartz that makes it among my favorite stones to carve. The beautiful pink hues are subtle and lovely and they glow with an inner warmth and light.

There is a quality about how the light can really bring about a warm soft peaceful pink hued glow within rose quartz. This stone has a sleeping dreaming feel about it, very quiet and restful. About half way through working on this piece I noticed that when viewed a certain way you could see a fish embryo and I thought that's very fitting, perhaps that's what a shell dreams of when it's sleeping, of becoming a fish.

The underside is polished allowing you to look into the "inside" of the shell. Quite a nice effect.

This carving was done purely for the fun of it. I had an odd shaped piece of rose quartz with beautiful colour but it had a few veils and inclusions to work around. So I just carved it with no preconceived idea of what it was going to be. About half way through I started to think that it looks a bit like a melting marshmellow. Add to that the wonderful pink soft gentle glow and you've got yourself a melting love marshmallow. :-)

These are some weird times we're all going through at the moment. Though challenging and unusual they have been fruitful in other creative and unexpected ways.

This is a small carving born of these times. It's a lovely piece of rose quartz and has the most wonderful soft hue of pink. I have layered five ginkgo leaves atop each other. The satin finish diffuses the light giving the stone a warm gentle glow.

In Japan the return of swallows in spring is emblematic of the 3rd month of March. They are a common motif used on many traditional Japanese works, such as inro and lacquerware. Our spring is not too far off so I was in a frame of mind to do something along those lines.

This carving portrays three swallows in flight among the clouds and wind currents displaying their flying skills. The rose quartz has a soft beautiful hue that the satin finish really makes glow. It was a challenging carving to do but I'm quite happy with the result. This is the third in my series of Japanese inspired rose quartz carvings.

According to Chinese and Japanese legend, a koi (carp) succeeds in leaping up a waterfall and turns in a dragon. This can be seen as an encouragement to have faith and confidence in one's abilities and to strive against all odds and adversities and in doing so you may just succeed! The koi also symbolises prosperity, luck and good fortune. They are known for their strength and ability to swim against the currents upstream and over waterfalls to reach their destination. Perhaps this tenacity and perseverance is what makes them so revered.

In Japanese, koi has a homonym that means love. That's kind of fitting given that I've really fallen for the beautiful soft pink glow of rose quartz. There is just something about it, the soft gentleness and peaceful spirit of the stone, the smooth tactile feel. It's calming and fortifying, unassuming and everlasting.

The reverse of the carving is a closeup representation the koi's scales (or could it be the dragon's that it might become).

A recent carving I did that was inspired by the annual sakura cherry blossom festival in Japan. The image I have tried to portray is of three sakura blossoms "falling" gently upon a waterfall. I love the soft pink hue of this piece of rose quartz and I think it gives the carving just the right feel culminating in a piece that has a beautiful gentle spirit.

Comments : The graceful fan-like quality of the facets makes this one of my favorite designs. It is simple, elegant and very stylish and wonderfully captures the yin yang motif that we are all familiar with. Rose quartz is the perfect material for this design with the sleepy dream-like quality of the rose quartz complementing it just right. I love this combo, so did the client!

Comments : A sweet dreamy rose quartz. What a lovely colour this soft pink is. I like rose quartz for its dreamlike natural... it doesn't cut a bright flashy gem like topaz rather it is more suited I think to an artistic and gently flowing style of design. This design features a "frosted" five petaled flower design on the pavilion. The flower reminds me of a peony. I think this gem would make a nice pendant set in gold.

Comments : Rose quartz is a gemstone that has its own special place and lore... it is always associated with love, peace, friendship, dreams and the heart. It is a gem that is immediately recognisable and adored for its soft, pink, dreamy appearace. This gemstone on offer here is a fine example of rose quartz at its best. It is cut in one of my favorite designs : Yin-Yang. This design goes so well with the dreamy nature of rose quartz and the ideals associated with Yin-Yang, namely those of peace, harmony and balance, complement those of rose quartz perfectly... an ideal match. This gems is lovely to behold and is a beautiful, elegant and graceful little work of art. A particularly fine gem.
