Oxidized Sterling Silver, 18K Gold and Phantom Quartz Cuff Bracelet
Phantom quartz is a variety go quartz consisting of visible layers of overlapping crystal growths. The outline of the inner crystals can be seen due to some variation in composition or mineral inclusion making the boundary between growths visible. The interior crystal layers a known as phantoms.
"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."-------------------
