Recently I am super-charged with the idea of showing off the beauty of a stone in it’s natural, raw state. Where crystals and sparkly stones are concerned I have the wonderment of a child and a fascination that it could possibly grow out of the earth and be so special.
This bracelet in copper and silver-plated mixed metals evolved from just three components held together. The metals wanted to swirl like roots around them, capturing and holding them securely as roots do.
Heavily hand-forged chain links and barrel beads of copper combine with the ancient and earthy. Quartz crystals and clusters, a fossilized ammonite, and the raw glitzy sparkle of small mica stones are wrapped together and ornamentally solder secured.
