Full description

"There were numerous issues and questions posed as this piece contained new realm of considerations in the designing of this" says Nikias, the designer. "Initially I was hesitant to use stones for the sake of decorating a piece. Instead I needed to devise a situation in which the semi-precious stone was not a decorative cabochon or a bead threaded on a string but essencial to the structure of the form". 

If a stone was to be "enclosed" in my precious-metal structure, then it would have "at least be given the space to move freely". Working on the designs I saw it was possible to create a free axis for a sphere to rotate around itself freely on a 360 basis. Joints in bone structures were useful in research. The design thus evolved into a center-piece of an encapsuled gem which freely "slithers" and rotates within a silver "droplet".

Inspiration:

It's name, "MATTER of TIME" occurred as intuitively as the design developed. It is the 4th dimension (time) and the trail that the earth leaves behind it (if you could imagine a tail as the past) as it revolves and spins in forward direction. The silver 'tail' holding and suspending the globe is my depiction of time in solid matter (in this case solid silver). - says the designer

"Surprisingly few people are aware that planet earth moves ahead in space and time apart from just revolving. This always fascinated me. "

The enclosed Sphere of the naturaly occuring crystal known as Snakeskin Jasper. Jasper is a stone of gentleness and relaxation. It enhances one's ability to relax and brings tranquility, comforting, wholeness, healing, and gentle endings. It is sometimes called the nurturing stone for its nurturing and protective energies and balancing of yin/yang energies.
