Rose Quartz Necklace from the collection Stoneage is made of gemstones like amethyst and rose quartz, alginate and cement. It is inspired by the amazing design of tools of the Stoneage. The rough character of the pendant dominates. The intentional uneven surface is refined with the gentle rose quartz in diamond shape. The gem is drilled and fixed in the pendant with a blackened silver stick. The colour is mauve to heather speckled with white granules of cement.
The fascination of Stoneage
The Stone Age ~ starting with the application of the first produced stone tools by men.
These are used by changing the base material into the mold for the purpose of disposal.
Slip rocks of the ancient archaeological cultures ~ deductions for weapons and tools with sharp edges.
From the age of the Lower Paleolithic in Africa, rather Ethiopia, remained these tools, which are about 2.5 million years old, and reflect Europe’s oldest finds from Georgia who are 0.7 million years younger, for us.
The hand-axes ~ the tool with a round base and pointed trimmed opposite side was „The Swiss Knife“ of the Stone Age. Through its amazing design it fulfilled numerous functions. These modified stones were used by the men or their hominid ancestors to chopping, cutting, scraping, hitting, throwing, scratching, acting and design ideas. What a tool!
