Interi Artifacts

Wood and gilt fragments come from Italian churches. These pieces have gone beyond restoration and are released and let go from church property. Beautiful carved pieces hving many hands, translated by many hours of work, going into decoration for articles of worship. Then they are decorated with precious gems like tourmaline, aquamarine, and rutliated quartz, just to mention a few. They are usually still in their matrix or raw form as they come from the earth. Shells are usually fossilized, not coming from the sea but from archaelogical digs of pre-ice age resulting in a combination of the rare and beautiful. Both materials blend together as though they were always one piece.
