Overview:The Black Cat Jewellery Store is an internet based business owned and run by me, Anna Berry. I specialize in handmade, semi-precious gemstone and dichroic glass jewellery and accessories.
The majority of my jewellery pieces I make myself, using my beloved semi-precious stones. I love working with colour and creating different looks by combining the gemstones with different metals such as silver, antique gold, gunmetal and my favourite, antique copper. I'm drawn to richly or brightly coloured stones such as fire carnelian, turquoise, various forms of agate and amethyst. I love the varying markings of a particular stone and how no two beads are the same. These factors are what inspire me to create a piece. My designs tend to be colourful, bold and striking.
As well as the gemstones, I use other materials such as freshwater pearls, Czech pearls, silver, gold, copper, brass, Swarovski crystals, Czech crystals, wood and glass.
I often use Tibetan silver in my designs. This is an alloy of commonly copper, tin and zinc. The beads that I buy are lead free and comply with EU nickel legislation.
