Wowwwww!!!! I love it! I love all of your pieces, best work i've ever seen, seriously! Now.. take a piece, any piece.. and make a tutorial! Pleaseeee! Doesn't even have to be a tutorial, just place a camera on a tripod and let us see how you do the magic that you do..
This is my description of my work on facebook: The Harlequin Romantique Jewelry brand is a line designed and handcrafted by Julee Drain. All jewelry is created by Julee from high-quality, brass die-stampings and Swarovski crystals. Each piece is a work of altered-art; to wear Harlequin Romantique Jewelry is to put on a sparkling collage of found and re-purposed jewelry pieces. [link]
I don't tell anyone I cast or carve, so no, I'm not bluffing about anything, not to mention, I don't charge the prices someone would charge for a piece like this cast or carved. If anyone remakes my designs they are taking my design and composition, and they should be notified that design and composition are the only important elements of brass-filigree and brass-repousse art. This is the way I enjoy making jewelry, this is an art-form I take a great amount of pride in, and there's nothing wrong with that. If you have a problem with it then I guess its your problem, dear.
This is by far one of the most beautiful pieces of jewelry I've ever seen in my life. The details are just amazing and I love the layered look you've managed with the jewel. I also love the deep blue of the stones; it really goes well together with the entire piece. Breathtakingly beautiful; there's no other words I can find.
