Unfolding Stones

This is a journey of unfolding stones to better perceive the inner natural beauty. Each stone is unique. Each has a unique growing process and its own story.

This final collection shows a recreation of stones using other materials, reenacting the amazing inner structure and an alternative option to achieve the sparkles.
