18K yellow gold, tourmalated quartz
Carved, earthen forms are majestically transformed into unparalleled opulence. Barbara Heinrich entices the soul in a nature-bound statement extended straight from the heart. Across translucent bodies of quartz stone lay strands of dark tourmaline, perpetuating an intoxicating contrast betwixt the quartz's pure and delicate body. In this organic, refined intricacy, the maker leaves nature's sediments behind as one makes out the umber character upon pieces of the stones' awry frames. A brilliant pairing of organic and ornamental design, she includes beads of high karat gold in this wearable assemblage. Barbara creates a mesmerizing expression of Patagonia's Viedma Glacier; endearingly cajoling the mind to the magnificent palace of ice.
