So, about me...2018 has been an exciting year for me as I have taken my passion for jewellery into my own hands. My name is Ali and I am the creative mind behind Ali's Pebbies and Gems.
Seeing someone’s spirit lift when they find a piece that speaks to them gives me goosebumps, they sort of take a little bit of me along with them.
I have a profound commitment to the quality of each piece. I spend a great deal of time choosing the gems to ensure that they are of the highest quality and aesthetically pleasing. I source my gemstones both locally and all over the world. I honestly fall in love with each and every piece I create.
I love working with wire and for many of my pieces I use 14k gold fill and sterling as these metals are more durable than plated metals yet are a fraction of the cost of solid metals.
When I start to make a piece, I have an idea in mind of perhaps the stones I am going to use, but then I just let the creativity flow and see what emerges.
Each piece just sort of creates itself and I feel privileged to have found this way of expressing myself!
