Jewelry in the Sketchbook

FullSizeRender (1)

I’ve been drawing some of my jewelry in my sketchbook lately. The one up above is a necklace I wear all the time, at least once a week. It was fun to color because it has both opaque and translucent gemstones.

I wear the second necklace less often, but often enough to keep it in my frequently-worn box. I thought it would be interesting to color because of the purplish sheen it gives off when light hits it. Plus, this one has a gold-tone chain, so I had a chance to color both gold-tone and silver-tone.


Both were drawn with pencil, traced with multiliner, pencil erased, then colored with Copic marker.

I’m happier with the first than the second.

I hope to fit a couple more pieces of jewelry on this page!

Setting the first mark to the first page of a new journal is thrilling.  I bought a set of three beautiful thin journals from Paper Source over Winter Break, and have completed the first page of the first one with a mandala doodle.  I just can’t wait to fill these with beautiful things!
