Often found in architecture, this symmetrical four-lobed shape lends itself nicely to jewelry in a simplistic and elegant form. The long modern necklace has a striking pattern repeat alternating a quatrefoil and diamond shapes. These shapes are interlocked using fine links on each component.

The earrings showcase a small zircon with a prong setting and encased using peyote. It is attached to a Quatrefoil link using fine chain and French ear wire.
