Jewelry maker Barbara Heinrich—working mainly in 18-karat gold, platinum and gemstones—molds metal to mimic the shapes and textures of nature. Just check out the detail on the bracelet pictured here.
“Creating jewelry is very natural to me,” Heinrich says, “yet it takes a very high concentration of a special kind, an inner listening and seeing. This takes me to a secret garden, a place in consciousness where things of great beauty and grace exist and are absolute realities.”
Barbara Heinrich will be featured at an artist reception at the Telluride Gallery of Fine Art on December 29th, 2008 from 5:30-7:30 pm.
