Here is the final rendering in my week-long series of animal-inspired brooches:

Watercolor and Gouache Gold and Amber "See No Evil" Monkey Brooch Rendering by Joana Miranda

A 3-brooch set of monkeys to complete the “Speak No Evil” and “Hear No Evil” trilogy would be a natural spin off to this design.   I think I chose to depict “See No Evil”, though, because I’m visually driven to seek beauty around me.  I hope I brought a little beauty to my readers’ eyes this week!

If you could leave the world a little better off, how would you do it?

    Hi! I’m from Kolkata India.Your designs lift up my spirits on a dismal
    day and I feel beautiful once again! They’re like meditation.Thanks!

    • Dear Sheeloo,

      Thank you so much for taking the time to write me! I’m glad that you felt uplifted by seeing my designs. Your lovely comment made my day. I’m not very good at meditation, although I do believe in its importance very much. Sometimes the most I can slow myself down is when I sit down to design and paint jewelry.

      Please come back and visit me often!
      All best wishes,
