Elephant and Dachshund Earrings

This Week @ Emily Lupita Studio:

This week I’ve been trying out a few new styles of jewelry for my animal artwork. I love animals and it gives me so much joy to draw animals in all sorts of bright colors & wonderful forms.

Winged Elephants

My favorite thing is to add wings and let them fly.

Recently I came across another style of jewelry to add to my collection – the glass teardrop. I made two prototypes of this new style to see how they look & feel.

I think they turned out really nice. The winged elephants feel light and bright in this new style. And the dachshunds seem to love them, too.

Design Decision:

I’m trying to decided if I should also try color designs with this new earring style or stick to the minimalist black and white ink drawings. What do you think? I’d love to hear your ideas.

Sending wishes for a beautiful day,

I’m experimenting with my different ink drawing / illustration designs and setting them into jewelry bezels. Also beginning to map out matching greeting card designs to create gift sets.

And a few new ink drawings / quotes on deck ready to be colored.

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.

Happy Thanksgiving!

This Week @ Emily Lupita Studio:

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you all had a nice holiday weekend.

My family came to visit this week and we had such a nice time together. I’m blessed with a very creative family and we did so many cool projects together.

I loved waking up in the morning to paint with my brother & niece.

My sister-in-law & niece helped me make my new line of artwork jewelry…almost 100 new pieces!

We stayed up late talking & creating all sorts of pretty things.

My mom is really talented at sewing and she’s helping me create a prototype for my new Lupita dolls.

So many great ideas…we’re still working on the final design but it has been fun experimenting with color, size & texture. Here are a few of our first dolls. My mom made the pink one – my favorite.

Sending wishes for a beautiful week ahead,
