asymmeTric balance

ice queen:  variations on crystal quartz – an asymmetric statement necklace

length:  24”/61 cm       weight:  7.2 oz/203 g


components:  semi-precious gemstones (crystal quartz, crackled quartz, milky quartz, light grey quartz), glass beads


This is a quietly complex and beautiful asymmetric necklace which, without the distraction of colour, makes an eloquent statement about the beauty of nature, and the sensitivity of the wearer.


It explores the textures, clarity, opacity, refinement, shapes and luminosity of crystal quartz. 


A line of 6 raw quartz crystal nuggets separated by crystal miyuki cubes is contrasted with 5 strands representing derivatives of this beautiful gemstone.


The raw crystals nuggets themselves are organic, craggy, and magnificent. 


The 5 strands include clear crystal quartz, which, in its pristine purity, is outstanding in and of itself.  A second strand contains rounded milky and semi-transparent nuggets and round beads.  A third is made of small beads of a clear light grey.  The fourth is composed mainly of clear glass beads, which set off and frame small frosted quartz beads.  Finally, the last strand contains crackled matte-finished round quartz beads.


A hammered silver clasp brings it all together.
