Kerry Rocks... Literally
In my quest for new and exciting bits and pieces I stumbled accros Kerry Rocks Jewellery, and what a pleasant surprise it was!
Australian born jewellery designer Kerry Beard has been designing gorgeous pieces for 6 years and after spending most of her life between Asia and Greece, Kerry naturally became inspired by the cultures of these amazing places. Her fascination for precious stones and jewellery brought her back to Australia to study gemology, and later her travels took her to India where she lived for three years learning all aspects of gem manufacturing and jewellery making.
Today Kerry's work takes her all over the world, from sourcing aquamarine and tourmaline in Africa, to amber and opals in Mexico. The stones are then hand cut and carved into beautiful gemstones and set into unique jewellery pieces. It's obvious that her divine collection has been inspired by far away travels and includes a beautiful array of Rubies, Emeralds, Tourmalines, Australian Chrysoprase, Opals, Pearls and Jade. There is a bridal collection available and Kerry Rocks is currently stocked in selected boutiques across Australia. To view the collection visit www.kerryrocks.com.au.
