Woodwick Walks in one of the most beautiful wooded valleys in Orkney inspired this collection. Woodwick' means'Bay of the Woods'.
The design evokes the sparkle of sun on water glimpsed through the trees, which run right down to the shore. Silver Necklet 925 Dimensions 22mm x 13mm Round Peridot 2.5 mm diameter [Earrings are listed separately and are not part of this listing]. Peridot is one of the few gemstones that occur in only one colour, an olive green. The intensity and tint of the green, however, depends on how much iron. Is contained in the crystal structure, so the colour of individual peridot gems can vary from yellow- to olive- to brownish-green.
The most valued colour is a dark olive-green. It is sometimes mistaken for emeralds and other green gems. Ola Gorie is one of Britains most important jewellery designers of recent times. A pioneer in the 1960s, she explored her Celtic and Norse heritage to find inspiration for stylish, wearable, modern jewellery.
Her designs have continued to break new ground, and influence a generation of designers. Her early pieces quickly gained approval at home and abroad, and her name became synonymous with stylish, finely crafted jewellery. She was awarded an MBE in 1999 in recognition of her work both as a designer and as a founder of the modern jewellery industry.
This honour was welcomed by the many loyal customers and collectors of Ola Gories jewellery around the world, as fitting recognition for the long-standing quality of her designs. Ola Gorie frequently appears in judges lists for prestigious awards such as the Scottish Gift of the Year and the Kayman Award.
