Pelota

The pyramid of the Magician at Uxmal towers high up into the sky with a commanding view of the plain. I named my gold necklace with a bead of aquamarine, emerald or pearl - running along a fine gold chain: Pelota after this popular Mayan sport.

Lapis Lazuli

Originating from Afghanistan, lapis lazuli has been used as an ornamental material in jewels, inlay work and as azure paint for over 6000 years. With a typically resinous and mottled appearance, the metamorphic rock is acclaimed for its intensely vivid and opaque ultramarine blue colour. Unusually for a gemstone it is a rock, not a mineral.
