So... I have been a bit quiet on the travel shots of late. Ive had a project on the go that has me all preoccupied... Its a bit daunting & scary but now I feel it's time to share what I've been up to!
Some of you may not be aware but back in the day when I was not traveling full time I was a jewellery designer and maker working in Sydney.
Whilst travelling I have been designing and making on the road. Traveling has given me more time and freedom to focus on my designs and the direction I want to take my small business... The many places I have visited on the East Coast has certainly given me inspiration and influenced my pieces. It's a slow process at times, but I am certainly learning a lot!
Don't worry I won't be bombarding my @travel.gurl account with jewellery, I have created another account especially for that! If you're curious check out @sarahashleejewellery
I also have an Etsy store up and running! .
Wow 5000 followers! 🎉 what a milestone! (no pun intended 😉) I feel so greatful for each and every one of you wanting to share this journey with me and encouraging me along the way. Because of all of you wonderful people Tatum Gems is a success and I will continue to share my unique gems, my vibrant photography, and my passion for gemstones with you all long into the future. Thanks for supporting this keen young girl's dream 😀🤓💎 #tatumgems

Heres a special Oregon Sunstone that will be available on the website real soon. It has the prettiest little display of 'glittery' schiller which can be seen with the naked eye, but this photo is taken under the microscope. Im falling in love with these Oregon Sunstones lately 😍 #tatumgems
Bumped in to a good friend at the gem show today. An old gemmologist who i met when i was first learning about gems, who got me excited about a career in gemmology! She used to always show me her most prized and rare gems and I'd try guessing what they were. Heres a pendant she had on today with a lovely graduated set of colourful Sphalerite 😍
Looking for something to do this weekend? The annual Adelaide Gem and Mineral show is on again exhibiting gems, minerals, fossils, jewellery and more!
Come and find me on Saturday I'll be volunteering at the GAA stand. Find out about our upcoming study courses or lets just talk gems! 🤓💎
