The book I used as a source for my painting is:
Which has the wonderful watercolor drawings, Seeing these is what inspired me to make my Faberge paintings on paper series. Often the drawings are shown beside examples of the real jewelry piece. :
"Within the pages of these record books are countless meticulous watercolour and ink drawings of, it seems, every jewel that was made by the firm from 1909 to 1915. Each design is dated and accompanied by detailed handwritten instructions as to type, number, and weight of gemstones, precious metal setting, and colour of enameling to be used in carrying out the piece. Hundreds of these invaluable - and incredibly beautiful - drawings are reproduced here for the first time, most in full colour, with captions describing the jewel, the materials to be used, and the date of execution. And very often the actual finished jewels are photographed next to the drawings from which they were created. "QUOTE
