White Tara


the Goddess of Love, Compassion and Peace in the Tibetan tradition. The White Tara has seven eyes, two at palms of her hands, and two at the sole of her feet, as well as the three usual ones. The eyes will be set with light blue diamonds 0.08mm in size. The base part, her lotus podium will probably change or go. Possibly platinum will be used for the back frame pin and bail. The work will to be a brooch and a pendant. Gold is 19k light rose. The White Tara work began as a learning exercise in the Chasing and Repouss√© techniques. It has grown into the beginning of something quite complex that due to budget and time limitations, is for now, waiting in its initial phase. The holes visible in the images, are preparations for settings, stones intended for this work are mostly natural fancy-colour diamonds with possibly some Burmese rubies. Slowly, about 200 different chasing tools and burnishers were made for Micro-Chasing. This is the name I use for this technique, ‘traditional Chasing and Repouss√© is similar but employed on a larger scale, with relatively much bigger tools’, while many of my tools are but a millimeter or two across their working ends. Size is approx 35 x 55mm.
