«Dendritic agate has always fascinated me with its particular shapes and meticulous detail. It is as if nature itself ha created a work of art! This ring almost seems to incorporate a beautiful tree in the fog, illuminated only by diamonds.» Pamela Huizenga speaks enthusiastically of her items, where precious fossilized wood, trilobites from the Paleozoic Age and, of course, rare dendritic agate become the main feature of absolutely unique jewelry. Raw materials that date back twenty million years or more but which appear extraordinarily modern, thanks to the minimal design of the shapes enhanced by an "accompaniment" of diamonds and gold. Like these «earrings in oak fossil, matched with rose-cut dark diamonds to create a perfect aesthetic balance of lines and color.»
