Tourmalated quartz 9.56 ctw, 18K yellow gold, black diamond briolettes 1.38 ctw
Effulgent glory manifests from the uncompromising beauty of nature. Transformed by her visit to the Viedma Glacier in Patagonia, Argentina, Barbara Heinrich composes one-of-a-kind pieces of adornment to fulfill her expression of its organic magnificence. Tourmalated quartz unfolds from a translucent terrain while dark, distinguishing lines travel across its opulent body. Together, the exceptional unity of crystal quartz and black tourmaline coalesce into a pleasing expression of meditative, calming distinction. Carefully carried within gleaming frames of high karat gold, the artist delightfully compliments the quartz's dynamic character. At the top of the piece, golden planes are carved with the utmost consideration as Barbara emulates the textured splendor of the glacier's icy terrain. Below, she gracefully adheres deep, black diamonds to balance its overall composition. On the ear, the work is a exceptional sight to behold. Such a statement is nearly weightless as it floats in space. Quite a treasure to continually stir the heart.
