Little Gems...

Thanks for finding my Little Gems… As often happens, this was a project that began with a happy accident! In this case, I’d painted a girl’s portrait, embellished with some ornate costume jewellery. For a final touch of magic, I added a bird in her hair. It had no reason for being there, other than I thought it looked good!

Anyway, one thing led to another and before long, I was hooked on the idea of making a series of twelve ‘Little Gems’. Each one, using the Birthstones for inspiration.

I hope you all find as much comfort in the pictures, as I did from painting them. I’ve put my heart and soul into the work. They all mean something special to me and while they took me ages to finish, I think it’s been time well-spent…
