Samantha has spent years finding her gemstone sources and has a handful of wonderful contacts who work directly with the mines to source her gemstones.
Unlike many jewellers Samantha loves the natural subtle variations in colour of untreated gemstones and prefers to use them in their natural state. As all her designs are inspired by nature where there is natural variation in the flower petals she feels it adds to finished piece rather than detracting from it.
Samantha has been a supporter of the Jeweltree Foundation for many years - the foundation helps mines create traceable supply chains and establish safe environmental and working practices.
Below is a list of the mines that Samantha works with.
SAPPHIRE : NYALA mINE, MALAWI
RUBY : RUBY FAIR MINE, TANZANIA
DIAMOND : ARGYLE MINE, AUSTRIALIA
