Tourmaline is one of the birthstones of October, and is the more durable of the two, its counterpart being opal. Tourmaline has been said to be a stone of reconciliation, a stone that fosters compassion and cool headedness, healing and friendship. It also creates a commitment towards the completion of one’s goals and is said to protect the wearer against dangers. It is also the gem that married couples traditionally gift on their 8th wedding anniversary.
Ciara Bowles' journey towards being a jewellery designer started from a very early age. Making things and understanding how things are made was always a fascination. By the age of 13 she had gathered together a collection of tools and had started making jewellery out of wire and drinks cans. After completing her training as a jeweller in 2012, she went on to work in the jewellery industry for world renowned jewellery brands and fashion houses - finding her feet in the London Jewellery district of Hatton Garden.
Ciara says; 'Being brought up in London's East End, my tastes in colours and aesthetics have formed through being surrounded by a multitude of cultures, historical legends and the urban city. Inspired by the patterns and forms that I see in my native environment, I strive to create intricate fine jewellery that are luxuriously exciting and imbued with a sense of playfulness. Using colourful stones and the ancient technique of lost wax casting, the jewellery combines the old and the new – and will hopefully stand the test of time.'
