I had the priviledge of building this custom order for a friend. The request was very specific and if you look closely a culmination of many previous designs from the past. The tree has been made using two stones, turquoise and blue magnesite, and the earrings are a large blue magnesite stone to complement. This tree is not a family tree of life, the friend simply wanted multiple stones and I love how it turned out.
I am mostly self taught and develop many of my designs through simple experimentation. Discovering a new technique or applying an old technique in a new way is very exciting for me. I often have middle of the night "brain waves" and some not so brilliant, "brilliant ideas." It is what keeps the process fresh.
