I created this series as a collaboration with Triian Jewelry. I first saw Triian's original designs from Oh Joy back in April 2010. I was so intrigued by their one-of-a-kind designs, I saved their designs in a folder and wanted to create some paintings inspired by them someday... 

A few months ago, Brian Burkhardt from Triian contacted me and asked me if I would be interested doing a collaboration with them. I was so delighted and honored. I knew it was the perfect opportunity I have been waiting for. I picked a few of my favorite designs from their collection and created this Gemmed series. It took awhile to brainstorm and paint everything, but it was all worth it. I learned a lot from creating this series and enjoyed every second of the process! 

 I had so much fun making them, and I hope you like them too.:) 

The complete series is now available as giclee prints from my etsy store

It's been so long since I last updated here. 
I miss coming here... 

 A lot things happened in the past three months. I have been quietly thinking, reading, working on some commissions and planning some personal projects. 

 I miss you all and hope you are doing well!:)
