First from new series

This is the first piece that is finished form my new series that is inspired from my work with people who have alzheimer's and other forms of dementia. I have been working on this for some time now and have several more pieces in the works and hopefully will have them done soon.

The piece is sterling silver, with a rutilated quartz that I bezel set.  The lines of rutilation in the quartz are to represent the "tangles" in ones brain and how thing can easily get confusing. The bottom piece is hollow constructed and I have put various sized holes in the dome to represent the missing memories that come from the disease.
I love this piece and can not wait to show it.
