QUANTIC BLOCK - a chunky version of the Quantic Collection.
The sparkle of the CZ's really stand out against the gritty oxidized background.
Just in time for summer shopping at the Remai Modern Art & Design Store!
Quantic - an integral grouping of consistent parts to create an expressive jewellery form.
These great arrangements - arrange great together.
This collection is hand fabricated combining the warmth of true bronze and champagne tones with the coolness of the sterling silver and the sparkle of white cubic zirconias. The oxidation really enhances the textures, while the high polishing makes the shiny elements pop.
Each piece is unique, no two are exactly alike.
I am thrilled to announce that I have been awarded Honorable Mention for my Hinged Pyrite Cube Bracelet.
Finalist judges were James Carter, Michael Sturlin, and Hazel Wheaton.
During the International Bead&Button Show in Milwaukee, Wisconsin June 8, 2018.
