Natalie Shau’s Jewelry Illustrations

What’s Natalie Shau been up to? Last we checked, the Lithuanian-based digital artist was creating sepia images based on Greek mythology. More recently, she’s completed a sumptuous new set of illustrations for French jewelry designer Lydia Courteille. On Courteille’s site, Shau’s dreamy Ray Caesar-esque illustrations serve to introduce each of the seven ranges: My Secret Garden, Vanities, Bestiary, Esoterism, Cameos & Glyptics, Cassandra’s and Cabinet of Curiosities.

The prices for Courteille’s diamond-encrusted bijoux range in the average of $10,000. Why use real diamonds? Gross! Nevertheless, there are a couple of baubles on Courteille’s site that I covet, and I include them here for your viewing pleasure.

    These illustrations are wonderful, great contrast to her earlier work!

    I’m inlove with the monkey ring, but knowing that these are real diamonds makes the jewelery twice as gaudy as fakes would have. Would not wear.

    Another favorite artist of mine. You just don’t know how to disappoint, do you? So beautiful, I could cry.

    It’s things like these that make me wish I had some form of wealth. Alas, you can’t pay for jewelry in shoes. *sigh*

    Admittedly I don’t care for the illustrations, but the jewelry is beyond exquisite. It’s simply extraordinary, aside from the corals – they’re gorgeous of course, but in this day and age they’re just inappropriate? irresponsible?
