I took some pictures in the dark so the shine of the gems is visible reflected from the flash:

I changed the color a bit. Sapphires are more in this season ;) Nevertheless, the necklace is absolutely amazing.


Here are the originals from which are illustrations are made. The original images are ©NadiPhotography2013 visit here.

The two images are drawn on the same paper sheet:

I really need perhaps to find a different layout for the blog to be able to post WIDER images.


Helen is a dancer too, you can really see that in postures:

  1. Oh my, your jewelry compositions are so beautiful and vivid! – I’m also imagining how should be wonderful to see them and their visual effects live… And, yes, Cartier is at the highest rank of the haute joaillerie ;)

    I really loved the way you defined and portrayed Helen’s very beautiful face and neck and how you drew her hair and its style and soft dynamics over her face – so feminine and strongly charming. By the way, I love such kind of feminine image :)

    Congratulations on your work and very special sensitive artistic gift, dear O.!
