I can imagine each piece in her shop looking great this festive season teamed up with elegant evening wear.

Her work is particularly focused on rings and cocktail rings for both men and women. Its really nice to see how her style is transformed into rings for men, they have a chunky look which matches many of the womens pieces to create beautiful matching sets.
Her Etsy shop is separated into different collections that all have their own distinctive look. Kalicat trained in jewellery at Central St Martins and Hatton Garden in London and each item in her shop can be customised to order.
You can find out more about Kalicat and see some of her pieces being created on her blog.

Gemstones - smoky quartz

Smokey Quartz is said to :
alleviate stress and transform fear, anger and other negative emotions into positive energies, thus having a comforting and calming effect.

It is also said to provide clarity of thought, improve intuition and enhance survival instincts, and to stimulate higher awareness in meditative states.

This gem is also believed to increase fertility, help remove toxins from the body, and aid in proper functioning of the kidneys, adrenals, pancreas and sex organs.
