Miniature Paintings to Wear

30 years ago, I merged two of my favorite things, miniatures and Renaissance art, into wearable paintings. In order to make paintings small enough to wear, I taught myself to paint in miniature. I paint using fine brushes and a magnifier. I draw inspiration from details in Renaissance paintings, illumination and nature. Thanks for visiting my shop!

Pieces are mostly on laser cut wood panel, gilded with 22k gold leaf and painted in acrylics. Some are painted on copper, resin, or other surfaces. The gold leaf is sealed with shellac, the paintings with acrylic varnish, as well as a final wax coating. Although protected by varnish, please avoid spraying perfume or hair products that contain alcohol directly on the gilded surfaces.

Chains are gold filled or sterling silver. Ear wires are heavy gold plate (22k over silver) or sterling silver. Ear posts are 14k gold filled, but can be 14k by request.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

Commissions are welcome. Just give me your idea and I’ll let you know if it’s possible.

Care instructions

The acrylic paint I use is very durable, but I varnish the painting as well as the 24 k gold leaf. The entire piece is then given a wax coating to further protect it and give a nice sheen. A little moisture, such as rain, won’t hurt the piece, but prolonged contact such as showering or swimming should be avoided. It’s best not to spray with products that contain alcohol, like perfume or hair products - just put on your jewelry afterwards. To avoid damage and wear, be careful of seat belts (when wearing pins.) If you have any issues with a piece you’ve purchased, message me and I’ll see what I can do.

Sizing details

I’ll always include measurements in the item description, and often a photo will show scale. For necklaces, I can offer chain lengths of 16”, 18” or 20”, unless the chain is not removable. Special size request? Please ask!

Gift wrapping and packaging

The jewelry is packaged on a decorative card, with care info on the back. The card is put in a pouch then a small cardboard gift box. Paintings are packed in a pouch, and if small enough, in a box. Otherwise the pouches are placed in a larger, attractive organza pouch.
