Idoya, Luk and I met on Facebook through common interests. When they began producing jewelry, we saw potential for collaboration. The phylogenetic tree design was a perfect starting place; intrigued with the design itself, I am drawn to the symbolism as well.
To incorporate micro-mosaics (adding color and pattern to the silver pendant,) I first fabricated a sterling silver frame and had more of them cast in sterling silver.
