Rutile quartz & pearl necklace
Rutile quartz & pearl necklace.
Rutilated quartz is a variety of quartz which contains acicular (needle-like) inclusions of rutile. These are all deep black, and although these inclusions mostly look golden, they also can look silver and copper red. These beads are faceted 5mm.
Alternating as a lovely contrast are these 3.5mm freshwater pearls.

His designs are elegantly modern, designed for life, and unmistakably David Ashton creations. Internationally recognised, his iconic ring stacks have been seen in Elle, Vogue, V&A, & the TATE to name a few.
In his younger years, David trained as a scientific and medical instrument maker in Cambridge and, consequently as an aircraft engineer. Importantly this provided him with a unique perspective on precision manufacturing which he then applied to jewellery making.
