CHM Carnelian Spheres

Artist Statement: The design is named after its inspiration: a radiolarian in the 1862 publication of microscopic sea creatures by Ernst Haeckel, appropriately titled “Art Forms in Nature”. To accommodate stones, I modified the creature as I redrew the Collosphaera Huxleyii Müller by hand. I textured, burnished and hand finished each stone setting by hand. Burnishing both sides of the ‘setting’ areas increases the light bouncing through the carnelian spheres.
