I am a designer who loves to constantly create works of art.  I have always had a real a passion for Jewellery of all kinds, and the true history and origins behind it all.  I adore up-cycling and creating something new out of something old.... To bring new life to vintage, retro and natural objects,  then turning them into super-special pieces.

Gorgeous rustic artisan hand sculpted necklaces, using reclaimed sterling silver and bronze and decorated with pretty tiny seed pearls and beads. A wonderful little summer necklace .

108 Ethically sourced tamarind wood meditation mala beads, with Thai brass and white brass framed sandstone Budha amulets.

All elements hand made or blessed by Thai monks in Northern Thailand , highly revered there. They are worn both as protection and good luck.

The background history: 

This stunning range of antique gem set Threepences 'Porteur de Fortune' , will melt anyone's heart. Each one of these antique Good Luck / Love tokens are completely unique 

An old English superstition decreed that a bent coin should always be kept in a pocket or purse to ensure that it's owner would always have a good amount of money. 

There were other purposes too. In medieval times, until at least the late 16th century, it was customary for a man to bend a copper coin and give it to his sweetheart as a token of his love and intention of marriage. They were never spent and were always carried by the woman as a demonstration of her loyalty and as a constant reminder to her each time she opened her purse.

In later centuries, especially the 18th and 19th centuries, coins were still used as love tokens. They were hand made; created by the young people to give to their sweethearts, and in some instances were given by soldiers and sailors before they went abroad as a keepsake of them. 

Barton Boutique Jewellery is designed and hand made by myself to bring old and new together in harmony, to create something unique and special. So, all these element have been brought together to bring you my new little range of lucky love tokens which I have named 'Porteur de fortune'. ( All of these beautiful antique love token coins are original with their settings), ready to be adorned.

 

BARTON BOUTIQUE CRYSTAL JEWELLERY.

 

This Crystal range is designed to balance the body using the healing properties of gemstones and crystals. For thousands of years, ancient civilizations have utilized the power of crystals to release mental, physical and spiritual blockages, thus facilitating the free flow of throughout the body.

 

On a cellular level, our bodies and quartz crystal are both made up of mineral silicon-dioxide. Because of this, we are naturally receptive to the vibrations of crystals as they transmit, reflect, store light and receive energy. When crystals are placed directly on your body, they have a powerful vibratory effect that surges from the crystal to you.

 

According to the law of physics, thoughts direct energy and energy follows thought. Each of our crystal energy pieces serve as a tool to help the thoughts of our consciousness connect with our body.

NATURAL, HEALING CRYSTAL PENDANT NECKLACES.


The spiritual traits of Druzy Crystals: 

These wonderful pieces are made up of many tiny crystals like a 'skin' of sparkly crystals. Druzy usually grew originally over another crystal or matrix, though they may not be attached to it currently. Occasionally they are floater clusters with no attachment previously to a matrix. 

Crystal Meanings and Metaphysical Properties Lore: Light and joy are brought to an environment or ritual by a Druzy Cluster. As a type of Crystal Cluster they also bring harmony to groups. They have energy that is especially helpful for Spiritual worship and Lightwork.

 

Like other types of clusters, they can empower the energy of other crystals and stones. Placing a stone on the druzy cluster for a day or longer period enhances their energy, especially if placed in moonlight or sunlight for 24 hours.

The spiritual traits of Amethyst: 

Amethyst is a natural stress reliever that encourages inner strength and brings wealth and a strong business sense to its wearer. It is a crystal of spiritual growth and protection. It brings clarity of the mind to their owner and you them to become more in tune with your feelings so that you get to know yourself on a much deeper level.
