Dendritic Quartz is a variety of quartz that contains fern-like inclusions of iron, manganese, hematite and other metallic oxides that grow in a fractal pattern. The word 'Dendrite' comes from the Greek word 'Dendron' meaning tree.
Brookite in Quartz is a form on titanium dioxide that occurs in nature as brown or black bladed crystals with a sub metallic lustre. As an inclusion in quartz it appears as a mesh of reflective silver to black needles.
"Playing with composition is the driving force in my process. I am drawn to asymmetry where finding the perfect balance becomes a meditation of sorts. Strong diagonals and sculptural elements combine to create visual movement which fuels my work with energy. The unique and daring pieces I create can take the wearer beyond simply adorning their body. They make a statement that becomes empowering.
My work incorporates combinations of sterling silver, 18 and 22K gold, and a wide array of natural stones. I use a variety of metalsmithing techniques such as hand-forming, soldering, and bezel setting. Pieces have subtly textured surfaces which are often finished with an oxidized patina."-------------------
