Rose Quartz Wire Wrapped Pendant – Amelia
Amelia was ‘small coals’. It meant she was worthless, no value. In the Welsh Collieries the coal that had been sifted and sorted had all the larger pieces of coal removed for sale. Everything else was piled up above the village as waste. It was here the poor people, mainly women and children, would scour the waste heaps for anything bigger than dust for their fires. It was hard dirty work and Amelia never thought of herself as ‘small coals’. She was a feisty Welsh princess. With her little black hands and smudged face she would toil every day burning with an ambition that would stay with her all her life. She had a large black scar on her left leg where one of the boys had thrown a piece of coal at her. Cutting her leg it had allowed the coal dust into the wound and she would wear it like a tattoo all of her days as a reminder of where she began.
This simple but elegant wire wrapped pendant has a Rose Quartz teardrop measuring 38 mm x 33mm. Total dimensions wrapped are 71 mm x 35mm.

Disabled for the last 25 years. House bound and restricted to a wheelchair, I had a need for some purpose in life. To feel I was still productive despite my health issues. In 2013 I became interested in jewellery making as it required only a basic set of tools and was something I could make on my lap tray. My interest soon turned to wire wrapped jewellery and now I make nothing else. All my jewellery is made from genuine gemstones with each piece being unique.
