When Stephen asked me to design a
selection of pieces for our Wish List
collection, the gemmologist came
out in me. I'm constantly on the lookout for
different cuts and different stones and I had
become fascinated with black diamonds -- their
use in jewellery and their origins.
Black diamonds are produced in the same way
as white, pink and yellow diamonds. Diamonds
are sourced from extinct volcano tracks called
kimberlite or lamphorite. They formed millions
of years ago and grow during volcano activity.
The diamonds we mine are those closer to the
earth's surface brought there by volcano
eruptions. Black diamonds are produced by a
slow lava flow. The long periods they spend in
these lava flows burn them and produce their
When black diamonds first came to the
jewellery industry there was hesitance to use
them especially as the focal point of a piece of
jewellery. This has started to change over time.
When designing this collection of art jewellery, I
aimed to feature black diamonds and display their
versatility. I combined them with white diamonds
to give the pieces contrast and movement.
I wanted the pieces to be bold with strong
lines and a geometrical feel. I achieved this by
using squares (princess cut) and rectangles
(baguette) diamonds. I also used the optical
illusion of circular (brilliant cut) diamonds set in a
To create interest, I used a variety of settings
styles (rub-over, channel and grain-set) as well as
the alternating the black and white diamonds. To
create balance and unite the pieces I used rows of
all black and all white diamonds. One of these
rows (of all black diamonds) runs through the
design to become the band of the ring.
To truly appreciate this set of jewellery art you
need to try them on. The set consists of a ring,
earrings and a pendant. They each have a life of
their own - reflecting their surroundings and

The two-finger whistle has eluded me
my whole life. I have always wanted to
do this. It always looks so cool,
particularly when used to hail a taxi or
attract the attention of a celebrity or a dog.
This kind of whistle is usually high in pitch
and if it doesn't attract the former it will most
certainly attract the latter.
I am not only going to explain this one, I'm
actually going to follow my own advice (a
There is more than one school of
thought on the best technique. Some go
for the "okay" symbol, made with your
thumb and forefinger, while others like to
go the pinkie route.
Either way, it seems essential that the
fingers are on the tip of the tongue, which
must be flat and pushed down behind the
lower teeth, with your lips closed over the top.
Now inhale, and with your lips firmly
pressed against the fingers, blow, dammit,
You can use your tongue at this point to
guide the air out through your mouth so it
goes downwards in direction to assist with
the whistle sound.
You might need to adjust lips, fingers and
tongue and practise a lot to achieve the
desired shrill whistle. To the taxis, people, to
