About This Project

Family Jewels is comprised of several miniature canvases assembled together. Each portrait depicts a member of my family and my grandmother’s jewelry. The rings, brooches, loose diamonds, and empty settings were purchased from a jewelry store her father owned. They are an inheritance tracing my lineage and represent a big risk my great grandmother took when she took a 2-month boat ride to Honolulu.
