Van Gogh's Almond Bracelet
Gold 18K and Rutilated Quartzes
Handmade, matte finish and prong setting
The beige hue of the almond blossoms in Van Gogh's painting were a challenge to replicate. Researching, I discovered that the flowers that he was painting were actually white with small yellow stigmas.
I found that rutilated quartz with its golden lines caused the same effect seen in the almond blossoms. The asymmetry of the branches was recreated in the shaping of the gold.
