Lapis Blue is a painting in my on going jewelry series, (see 'Semi Precious', from monday January 11, 2010). Irregular chunks of lapis lazuli polished to reveal the various veins of grey and white imbedded in the stones, strung together with a few choice bronze beads and placed on a rumpled swatch of orange striped silk. Semi Precious stones creating a semi-abstract painting. A little something for those who enjoy blue... mixed with its complementary colour for added drama and spice. An exotic piece for your wall.
