Lanzarote is in the Canary Archipelago and has a special place in my heart.  The island’s volcanic ferocity, together with the intense contrasts between the North and South offer a feast for the eye and endless inspiration.

On one of my walks, I came across a beach with millions of beautiful lava pepples. They mesmerized me instantly, and I collected a small number of stones. Back home, I personalised some of them by adding a design made out of metal flakes and incorporated a semi-precious stone. These paperweights have an enduring beauty and would make a  special and lasting gift.
