Handcrafted Jewelry by Polly Wale: Lost wax casting techniques are paired with fine gem stones. Polly uses sapphires rubies directly cast into gold, creating pieces that resemble natural gem encrusted forms, like sparkling geodes split open. This unorthodox process is unique to her has become her signature style, gaining her international recognition.
I like the use of mix media in this illustration. It consists of a close up on a face that is faded so this would be a good composition for an illustration of accessories or jewellery. On the other hand you could transfer the skills used here to a full sized illustration of a garment or icon, creating the same atmospheric and natural effect. Massimiliano Gasparini
