I have recently finished a grouping of new jewelry entitled The Scrub Oak Series in sterling silver. This design was inspired by all of the scrub oak trees in Southern California where we have been staying for the last month. Here is a little cluster of scrub oak trees near our camper!
Then I did this drawing in marker of a stylized scrub oak leaf.
After the drawing was done, I took a photograph of it and put it into Photoshop and adjusted the contrast, brightness and I shrunk down the image to the proper size.
I then duplicated the shape printed it and used rubber cement to glue the drawing onto the sterling silver sheet. After the glue is dried, I drilled holes through the white parts and hand-sawed all of the segments out of each component.
