Formerly Fi's Jewellery and Devon Gemstone Jewellery
Moor Elements is the new name for Fi's Jewellery and Devon Gemstone Jewellery. Devon Genstone Jewellery is the Wholesale section of Moor Elements.
I first started Moor Elements as a hobby making presents for friends and family. It soon became clear that I didn't have enough friends or family members to give it too, so a friend suggested that I sell some on a stall.
Zale Fayre was my debut stall, followed shortly by Dartmoor Folk Festival. They both went very well and I continued with South Tawton Market and very local markets. I am now in my 11th year and travel all over Devon to different locations and can be found at Chagstock every year.
I supply jewellery to the National Trust Shop at Castle Drogo and have stock in The Store, South Zeal, A Little Gift Co in the Arcade, Okehampton and Lamberts Emporium in Tavistock.
My love of semi precious stones came from my mum, Marion, who loved semi precious stones. When I lived in Scotland we used to go for walks in the Ochils where we would find crystal geodes, amethyst and garnet.
As a teenager, I went to school in Edinburgh and after school I would go down to a shop in the grassmarket that sold jewellery findings. I spent many a good hour designing earrings for myself mainly but didn't take it any further.
Eleven years ago, I decided to start putting semi precious stones in jewellery, which would combine two of my favourite things! I am self taught and am always learning new techniques and designs.
I have now added Pebble Pictures, Cork (vegan) and Leather Jewellery.
