This is a pendant I made using a stunning rainbow moonstone drop, it needed to have another rainbow moonstone to balance it and then some emeralds and pink tourmalines to set off the wonderful colours in the main stones. In 9ct yellow gold.

Art Nouveau Opal Pendant - Joanna Thomson Jewellery, Peebles, Scotland

Two beautiful solid opals – one marquise shape and one pear-shape – that I set into a very Art Nouveau influenced design.  I also added a diamond to give it a twinkle and two toumalines to pick out some of the colours in the main opals. Made in 9ct yellow gold.

Another Rainbow moonstone!  This time a very beautiful round stone that was full of waves of colours crossing an ephemeral moon. I wanted to include some diamonds and a shooting star crossing an unusual piece of lapis lazuli.  Made in 9ct yellow and white gold.

Rainbow Moonstone and Lapis Pendant - Joanna Thomson Jewellery, Peebles, Scotland

This is a very pretty little ring design.  Now and again I draw up a design that really works!  Most of my designs work, but very occasionally I manage to come up with a “classic”!  In this case a pearshaped pink tourmaline crossing over with my heart-shaped leaf and a little diamond to give that spark.  Ref FR142

I make a wide range of Celtic ring designs mostly worn as wedding rings but also worn as dress rings.  Here I have added a lovely bright ruby in a rub over setting to make one of the narrower designs just a little bit different.  A perfect ruby wedding present perhaps?

Bespoke Wedding Rings - Peebles, near Edinburgh, Scotland

This is an unusual ring for me because I made it in platinum. The diamonds were the property of a customer and are all rather wonderfully different and quirky. I added my leaf motif and it is unmistakably one of my pieces!

Something completely different again!  This time I was commissioned to make a golden eagle kilt pin in silver.  It is over 4 inches wingspan and as a keen bird-watcher I really enjoyed making it.

Bespoke Designer Eagle Kiltpin - Joanna Thomson Jewellery, Peebles.

This little kingfisher brooch was only about 30mm tall.  She was made in three colours of gold, yellow, red and white.  It was commissioned as a present to commemorate a trip on a longboat.  I loved making this, it was quite tricky to do but I think I have captured the essence of the bird and the wee sapphire in the eye has brought it to life.  This is a female, the lower part of the beak is in red gold. The male has an all black bill.

Another bird motif.  This time a little wren perched on a branch in a pendant. The aquamarine above is the birthstone of the recipient. Fortunately the wren has a very distinctive shape and “jizz”!

Scottish Bluebells Necklace - Joanna Thomson Jewellery Designer, Peebles, Scotland

And this time a Scottish bluebell pendant in silver. Making something very specific means that I like to do some research to make sure that I get most of the finer details as close as I can.  Nature doesn’t make that easy, she has such a consumate ability to make perfection!  Still, I am happy with the balance of the design.
