Every Day in May #12 - Ornamentation

I just love squiggly, swirly be-jeweled things.

Before I started focusing on drawing and painting again, I had a jewelry business for several years where I created pieces from sterling silver, pearls, glass and semi-precious beads and sold them.

I am drawn to highly ornamental work, even though much of my own artwork, except for the jewelry I made, does not reflect that. Here's a little tribute to ornamentation in my Gratitude sketch journal. Micron pen and watercolor wash.
