"As a photographer I am trained to take pictures. Relentless in this pursuit, I have learned over the years how to make images regardless of the emotions pouring through me. Yet, in the face of such vital and trusting ecosytem, I was so overcome with emotion that I put my camera down. I walked up a small ridgeline and looked out over 200 000 king penguins just as the morning light had begun to highlight the colourful accents of their feathers. I just stood there, allowing the most powerful scene I ever witnessed to permanent imprint itself in my brain.“ (Paul Nicklen: Born to Ice). This wonderful luminating moment is captured in the Antarctica artwork earrings: Penguin Cameos made of Mother of Pearl, surrounded by 160 Diamonds, Moonstone and Rose Quartz. Set in 18k Rose Gold. By purchasing jewels from my Rescue collection, I am donating to dedicated Ocean projects.
Turquoise and all treasures of the sea, such as Coral, Mother of Pearl, all kind of Pearls, Amber, Conch and Corniola, have to be protected from cosmetic, hairspray, soap, perfume, acid and extreme sun exposures. It can be cleaned under running lukewarm water with a very soft towel (please don't use microfiber). To avoid scratches please store jewels always separated from each other in the attached pouch.
