GEORGIE Roberts, 28, lives in Croyde but confesses to be a wanderer at heart.

Often fleeing seaside life during the harsher winter months, she goes in search of far-flung destinations.

It was while enjoying such travels that the inspiration and idea for her range of jewellery Wanderlust Life was born.

She soon began sourcing stones and jewels from all over the world to use in her designs.

"Wanderlust means 'a strong desire to travel'," she said. "I've been lucky enough to travel to many countries over the last 10 years, so travel is close to my heart."

Semi-precious gemstones (including chalcedony, rubies, turquoise and amethyst) twinkle in the light and delicately sit on a natural tone fine cord. It's almost as if they are "floating" on the skin.

"I work with lots of different semi precious gemstones," Georgie said. "I love the idea of carrying a jewel from a faraway place, and keeping it close to your heart, keeping memories of travels and far away places close, keeping that wanderlust with me."

Georgie learned all about gemstones from her mum. "I love that they all have their own unique symbols and meaning. I also have a design-based degree, and so I've always worked in a creative environment, and now I'm loving being able to feed all I've learned into my own work."

The necklaces are each finished with 24ct rolled gold findings. The result is understated, minimal and chic. "I love the way they catch the light and sparkle.

"I like the idea of carrying a little jewel around your neck from a faraway place – how magical is that?," she said.

Continuing with the wanderlust theme, Georgie is now travelling the globe to source products crafted by like-minded designers.

Her new website www.wander lustlife.co.uk sells Wanderlust Life jewellery and a beautiful selection of accessories from independent designer makers all over the world, including NeNe bags from Californian designer Jennifer Watson.

Her jewellery is also stocked in The Oystercatcher in Croyde, and Lorna Ruby Clothing in Exeter.
