by Christine Hilbert of Etsy Shop: “Bean & The Sprout”
Heirloom Anthology is a series of mixed media sketches and paintings derived from collections of keepsakes.
“I use a hybrid of techniques including pencil drawings and watercolors combined with a cache of heirloom bits and baubles to create a two dimensional archive of memory. “
“Part illustration, part collage, part photograph, they preserve and commemorate these treasured pieces, taking them from family collections to an heirloom anthology.”
” Once photographed, each collection can then be transformed into a piece of custom made jewelry, further reviving these antiquated tokens.”
