CREATING A STUNNING GILDED RENAISSANCE STYLE BROOCH from a Discarded, Antique, Empty Brooch Shell.
Watch me restyle and rebuild a discarded, very old, gold-colored, empty shell. This was my first Jewelry project which I began on a whim, albeit a serious one, begun in August of 2009. This video, slightly over two minutes, is fun and informative about gilding and styling jewelry, which I managed to create and complete on instincts alone -- please remember I had never even bought a loose gem before, much less a headpin -- but I had a history of having been an artist all my life and after having had a stellar career as an Advertising Art Director in New York City at places like VOGUE MAGAZINE for such fashion icons as Mrs. Vreeland and also as a top-rated, freelance Art Director in NYC, the heart and soul of both fashion and jewelry, as well as advertising I seemed to be a natural as a jewelry designer and creator! The video is fun, interesting and fast-paced. If you want to see more stunning Jewelry go to christianorlovjewels.com
