Yesterday I posted a sketch, CAD rendering, and a detailed pencil drawing for the jeweled box I designed for my parents. Here is the finished painted version of the closed jeweled box:
I chose to render this jeweled box showing yellow flowers with blue ribbons in enamel on a white enameled background, along with yellow gold trim, small melee diamonds, a blue cabochon sapphire, and a carved amethyst bead on the top of the box. These rich colors are common in the tile work found in Portugal, as well as in the lovely porcelain Vista Alegra ceramics. Tomorrow I’ll post a picture of the box open to reveal the surprise inside!
