This is in the end a piece of jewellery. But here you'll find highfired porcelain, stone cutting and polishig, shell cutting and polishing, blacksmith techniques, welding, jewellery stone mounting, polishing, etc.

Garnet (on the lock piece)
Phosphatic porcelain with cobalt oxyde glaze inlay - 1200C (the back-mounted piece)
Seashell - Black Sea
14k gold

Size: =4cm

The sliced seashell is a complex inner structure and this natural architecture has to be protected in a case of metal and ceramic. This is a frozen moment of the elements like a slice of the nature's mineral world. The garnet was crystalized in the planet's fire, the porcelain is sand, clay and oxydes reshaped by extreme fire while the minerals structured in the seashell shape by a living organism are a solid print of the life's forcelines. All these brought together and rearranged through the gold's embrace speak of life, earth, fire, water and air. inside.

Wow...this is really breath taking. And almost as stunning as the jewlery it's self is the way you write about it. Such a lovely descrption of a piece of work can only show how passionate about one's art a person is.

The simplicity and delicacy of this really have to be what make it as remarkable as it is. I'm no jewlery maker, but I can see how much was put into this and with what skill it was executed. I must say you have made a marvelous piece of art with an extraordinary epic of a description!

A long time ago. I wouldn't have it on display here on dA if it wasn't from the past.

Anyway, nobody said anything about selling 'n stuff. This is not advertising to sell things.
