Snowflake necklace

Autor: Piotr Zieliński

Fractals are a mathematical term for forms that represent the same repeating pattern on every scale.

This relationship is clearly visible in snowflakes. No two are alike, yet each is a fractal. Individual arms branch into smaller and smaller ones. For me, the phenomenon of self-similarity in nature has always been a sign of a conscious, higher design. In response to these considerations, a snowflake necklace was born.

It would seem that the obvious color for the snowflake would be white. However, when I watched a video showing ice crushing, I noticed that the ancient permafrost is blue in the fracture! Fascinated by this phenomenon, I opted for blue topaz. The stones were cut to order, especially for this project.

When designing the composition, I made sure that the necklace had an interesting obverse, studded with stones, and a reverse, creating an intricate fractal composition. The whole thing was handcrafted in white gold 750.

The reverse of the necklace show its beauty and careful craftsmanship.
