2020 - 2021

In the summer of 2020, a friend gifted me with a crystal to help me cope with the loss of mom. She believed that the crystal assisted us in overcoming hardship by offering alternative positive outcomes to a loss.
I opted to begin by recreating a corner of my mother's room and growing crystals on some of her personal favorites by immersing them in a solution of saffron and hot saturated sodium borate liquid to enable the material to stimulate the objects and gradually create dendritic crystals.
