Quite Contrary Jewellery
MEET Mary Hinde
Elegant and timeless jewellery from gorgeous pearls, semi-precious stones and minerals
Mary trained at the Sir John Cass School of Art & Design in London, where she spent four happy years specialising in silversmithing and jewellery making as well as developing her enamelling skills and stone setting.
She has always loved gems and semi-precious stones. They have a subtle but powerful energy which many people recognise, even subconsciously. She believes that we all have a ‘favourite’ – a stone whose energy, colour or vibrancy in some way interacts with your own. It is not necessarily diamonds that make you feel good. maybe your ‘feelgood’ stone is Amethyst or Jasper, but she is convinced we all have one special stone.
She has a special interest in pearls too. Each pearl is unique, and best of all, the variety is increasing all the time thanks to innovations in sustainable pearl farming techniques. These innovations bring good quality pearls within reach for more people to enjoy them.
