Behind The Cut: New Baja Stones

Flint and hematite bring a sophisticated new edge to the Art Deco inspired Baja collection.

We've handcrafted our new Baja flint pieces from stones that are frequently found along the Norfolk coastline, our design home in England. This is where the world's best known flint circles occur in fascinating formations on the beach.

  • Raw Flint

    Flint is a cryptocrystalline form of the mineral quartz and it is found in sedimentary rocks, such as chalk and limestone. We selected stones that are caramel in colour with natural stripes of browns and creams. The stone is reminiscent of the Norfolk shoreline and is seen in architectural designs throughout the countryside, often in ornate chequerboard patterns. Grand buildings such as Castle Acre Priory, Kings Lynn Town Hall and Felbrigg Hall date back as far as the 11th century and reflect the natural beauty of their surroundings.

  • Baja Rings in Flint and Hematite

    A waxy, matte texture and soft tones give the flint jewellery a calming neutrality that is effortless to wear. Every piece is unique, with whirling patterns that are almost fossil-like. We love how this organic texture is offset by clean, minimal Baja shapes.

  • Raw Hematite Gemstone

    Hematite is the mineral form of iron oxide, usually formed near mineral hot springs and standing water. The striking steel grey colour of this gemstone is unlike any in our collections. Hematite has a metallic, reflective shine that feels cool and contemporary. A consistent sheen makes the stone ideal for colour blocking. It is perfect for monochrome looks and minimalist style.
