New jewelry box in LekaArt shop!

Hi all! I'm Elena and I have smth unusual for you today!
Almost 5 years ago I graduated from Moscow State University, where I studied history. I still love everything that is connected with Ancient times. So I decided to paint a new jewelry box and to show one of ancient Egyptian gods Horus.

Very often he was pictured as a falcon. Here are some examples:
Horus was the god of sky and sun. It's said that he also was a god of war, hunting and protection.
I liked the falcon with wide wings and based the painting on this picture :) And now we have this nice hand painted jewelry box :

Hand painted jewelry box "Egypt". Point to point. LekaArt.

You can find more photos of this jewelry box in our shop LekaArt on Etsy !
Thank you for visiting us!

Faithfully yours,

How to make an ornament for a decorative plate?

Many of those who start to paint think that it's very difficult to create an ornament for decorative plate, jewelry box, doll or smth else. Usually it's not true :) And we are going to prove it!
There are lots of books about ornamental design  in the world. All you need to do is to find some pretty elements of your future decorative painting. We have such book and chose the chapter about Japanese art of XVIII - XIX centuries. This is what we found there:

This round decorative element of a Japanese folding screen is perfect for being a nice ornament on a decorative plate! We used all main elements and add several new elements along the edges (u'll see it a bit later :)

So now we have and ornament. What we should do next? Obviously - to choose colors! We took mint and violet as main colors and silver and white as additional colors.

Advice: to put the ornament on a plate use firstly a pensil! It will make your work much more easier!

And the result is:

Decorative plate "Easter Mint"

Let's hang a decorative plate!

We are often asked about special hooks on the reverse side of our decorative plates. Are they safe? Or the plate will fall down in a month?
According to our experience and clients' feedbacks our hooks are safe. They are made of a silk cord. We use epoxy to paste them on plates. If you treat hangings in a right way they will decorate your home for years.
This is how the reverse side of the plate looks like:

Still we understand that some of you will prefer to use smth more reliable :) In this case we offer you a special metal plate holder. It costs 4$ And looks like this:

We hope this information about hanging plates was useful and interesting.
Faithfully yours,
Viktoria and Elena
