Art Under Glass

This Week @ Emily Lupita Studio

It has been an exciting week here in the studio with the launch of my new Art Under Glass jewelry line. The collection is off to a great start with 30 colorful pieces of art encased under glass and set in pendants of different shapes & sizes.

My sister-in-law and niece were amazing and helped me to get started on this big project when they came to visit several months ago. I’ve been working on finishing this first batch of the collection since then and each finished piece is so special to me. I feel like I’m just getting started with this new miniature art form.


How It’s Made:

The process for making these little wonders begins with creating a digital image of my original watercolor painting that fits the size of the pendant. Then I print the image, cut it to the proper shape, wax it and bind the glass to the top with a transparent fixing agent, making sure the glass doesn’t slide around by holding it in place until it sets. After this dries for a day, I wax the back of the image, coat it with fixing agent and set it in the metal pendant base coated with a thin layer of metal glue. After the finished pendant dries for 2 days…Voilà!the art jewelry is ready to wear.


Coming Soon:

I was so happy to be asked to make a custom pair of earrings using this same Art Under Glass technique to match a friend’s favorite painting in my Artist’s Alphabet book. Such a wonderful idea! After several tries I found the best design to fit the space and just loved seeing the book pages transform into earrings. It was a fun project and I was inspired to keep on making a series of alphabet earrings…coming soon.


Sending wishes for a beautiful day,

Where You Go I Will Go

This Week @ Emily Lupita Studio

The Follow Your Dreams Project is going strong with several new designs coming to life. One of my favorites is this new art print featuring two winged elephants, first in ink then in color, framing the quote, “Where you go I will go. Where you stay I will stay.”


I made this design after finding a second elephant ink drawing in a random folder. For some reason these winged elephants I drew years ago really speak to me now. I wonder how many more are out there hiding in my studio, just waiting to be re-discovered?


I know this is how creativity works sometimes, in large loops, but it still surprises and delights me how (and when) inspiration shows up. The elephants gave me that spark I needed to start creating more freely in this new medium of ink and illustration.


I made a few trees, this being the one I ended up illustrating. The trees led to flowers, which became more & more detailed and eventually resulted in this tulip design, looking very Turkish.


I got excited about the new designs pouring out and ended up re-designing my blog & website with the new images. I’m not exactly sure where all of this creativity will lead, but that’s part of the adventure and right now I’m just enjoying being along for the ride.

On Creativity:

This week I’m wondering about inspiration…how it works, why it works, where does it come from? I’m interested to know how inspiration appears/works in your life. Have you ever created or been inspired by something and then forgotten it, only to have it re-appear at the most opportune time, like my winged elephants? If so, I’d love for you to share in the comments section below.

The Artist’s Alphabet Books Are Here

This Week @ Emily Lupita Studio:

An exciting time in the studio…The Artist’s Alphabet books are here!

It has been an amazing artistic journey to get to this point and I’m so happy with how the books turned out. Sending many thanks to everyone who has encouraged and supported me along the way!

The books have now been sent out to my wonderful group of Kickstarter backers and should be arriving in the mail by the end of the week. I hope you enjoy all the bright colors in your special book packages!

A huge thank you goes out to my mom, Juana Maria, for spending time here at the studio to help me wrap, package and mail all the books. It was definitely a two artist job…and we had fun talking & listening to music together while we got it all done. Sharing here a photo of the dining room table during our book wrapping party.

How to Order:

I have a limited number of signed books available for sale in my Etsy Shop. I’m happy to dedicate the book to someone special as well, just let me know in the “notes to seller” section at checkout.

This is the direct link to order a signed & dedicated copy of the book:

Once my supply here in the studio runs out, the book will remain available for sale on, but those books ship directly from the warehouse, so they don’t pass through my hands and won’t be signed or dedicated.


I’m excited for my books to make their journeys out into the world.

Sending wishes for a beautiful week ahead,

-Emily Lupita
