The earth's crust and mantle consist of three different kinds of rock; igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic. From these types of rock gemstones are formed.
Most gemstones are mined from 1-25 miles below the earth’s surface, diamonds are much deeper. Their beauty is the result of intense pressure, heat and water.
I create statement jewelry from gemstones because they symbolize the beauty of transformation and resilience; a reminder from nature that transformation can be an intense journey of surrendering to the process of allowing the debris that held it to be removed so it can emerge beautiful and valuable.
This eight strand citrine and peridot statement design is part of my Spring/Summer Collection that will be featured in the TruFusion 9 & Co Black History Vendor Event
