Garnet gifts can be hard to find! A really special and unique way to mark the date, whether it's the birth of a January baby (imagine a garnet themed baby shower !!! ) a January birthday, the gemologist in your clique, or just because you like those beautiful deep red precious stones.
Some facts about Garnets!! Garnet is the birthstone for January. The name is derived from the Latin for seeds 'granatum' as the classic colour resembles pomegranate seeds. Though pomegranate red is closely associated with garnets they actually come in every colour except blue!
This Birthstone print art is created by hand printing a gemstone shape with a hand tooled linocut before embellishing with enchanting watercolours, editing in photoshop and printing on to acid free 160gsm paper. Each of the birthstones has been designed with a fusion of printing and painting techniques. They are digitally edited prints of an original artwork. Each print has an artwork of the chosen birthstone and the name of the birthstone underneath.
The signed unframed prints are A4 (11.7" x 8.3"), delivered within a plastic protective sleeve in a card backed envelope.
Framed prints will be trimmed and framed in a 23x23cm ( 9" x 9" ) square white box frame as shown.
