Cinnabar is a mineral similar to mercury and the Chinese loved it for it’s deep red colour and would make a lacquer from it to be used on jewellery, beads, boxes, furniture and other ornamental items. It apparently originated from the Song Dynasty. However due to it’s toxicity now in the modern day they have replaced it with a vibrant red resin to achieve the same look however much safer for the consumer.
On her travels Edwina has collected thousands of beads from all over the world. From India, China, Nepal and Tibet to France, Greece and Italy. Inspired by her Aunt’s and fascinated with the beauty of the beads of the world she has been making earring since she was a young girl. Now she can bring her passion to life and gets so much joy seeing her creations on her customers ears.
