Iolite Stretchy Bracelet
Approx 7 inches
The name ‘iolite’ originates from the Greek word ‘ios’ meaning ‘violet’. Iolite’s strong pleochroism earned it the misleading trade name of ‘water-sapphire’, a name now obsolete. From one direction, iolite can appear sapphire-like blue and from another, it can appear as clear as water. Furthermore, from the top view down, it can appear light golden or honey-yellow in color. ‘Dichroite’ is another synonym for iolite in reference to its pleochroic ability; ‘dichroite’ is a Greek word which loosely translates as ‘two-colored rock’. Iolite is also known as ‘the Viking stone’ because according to Norse legend, Vikings used iolite as a polarizing filter to help them find the sun on cloudy days. It is believed that the Vikings discovered iolite deposits throughout Norway and Greenland.

I started jewellery making back in 2010. It was a way of coping after I lost my Dad. Sadly losing my Dad took its toll on my health, and I was diagnosed with anxiety and depression.
I was diagnosed with chronic sinusitis back in 2010, after suffering facial pain and various infections. This flares up from time to time.
In 2014, I started getting severe lower back and leg pain, and after lots of physio and an mri, it confirmed that I have degenerative disc disease. Sadly there is no cure for this. After having various medications to help control my pain, this has now affected my stomach, and I now have ongoing inflammation of the stomach, and I am very limited to what I can eat and drink. This affects me every day as I can no longer take pain relief for my back, or any other illnesses.
My underactive thyroid was diagnosed in 2019.
