More Jewelry Making Fun :)

Made this in jewelry making class too :D My first ring! It's a carnelian stone set in fine silver bezel, and everything else sterling. I have to say, I'm quite proud of the outcome.

JewelryMakingMetalsmithing FUN

Shiny Bracelet made by first cutting out the medallion on 22g brass sheet, then soldering on a hammered cuff (Made with 20g sheet NuGold), THEN put into the tumbler for strength and high shine. TADA!

Monet Replications

 They are for my art teacher's new office :)
Oil on 20'' square canvases. Took about four weeks total. One thing I have mastered in my 15+ years of art making: Speed Painting.

Experimentation with Tissue Paper

Oh tissue paper, how I love thee.
With you I can create with such variety.
Greeting cards, decoupage,
and you don't even bleed.
With you, I feel artistically free.
5-in-1! 4 pieces + 1 poem = You're welcome.

Sex, Drugs, and Rock and Roll... actually jk, a waterfall.

Hehe...had y'all fooled. The first watercolor in a long time.

Fashion Sketches are my favorite hobby

Original image derived from Lucky Magazine. Watercolors and microns :) My go-to mediums for EVERYTHING.

Fashion Sketches

I am a newbie when it comes to drawing figures. this was done using the only resource I had at the time, my brain. :) It progresses from the more abstract figure to a more realistic one. Point out any mistakes you see! I always love a good critique.
