Jubly-UmphWednesday, October 24, 2012
An interesting title isn't it? Well, Jubly-Umph is actually a Melbourne based artist who paints pictures in watercolors and Indian ink creating characters with mysterious eyes and curious occupations. Her lovely lady heads are instantly recognizably and owning one is like being in a secret club. She is influenced by traditional tattoos, folk art and Victorian sentimental ephemera. Her paintings are available in limited edition giclee prints, eco-friendly greeting cards and resin coated jewelry pieces.
Each piece is created from an original Jubly-Umph illustration and made from solid stainless steel coated in glossy resin. It is light weight and waterproof and comes with a stainless steel chain. The new designs feature beautiful floral anchors, lucky horseshoes and smiling sugar skulls all bright and cheery for spring.
They sent me this set and I would say that I am really impressed with their creations. Truly their designs are one-of-a-kind and totally different.
As you can see, all of their creations were branded by their name. It's definitely owning their art like when we put watermark with our photos. Actually, at first I thought that the steel pieces will be heavy but I realized otherwise when I was able to hold it. It was actually really thin and light. Also the designs are scratch-proof because of the glossy resin.
The package included a postcard with their designs and also their calling cards.
What really touched my heart is that, the artist know that I am a bookworm that she also included a personalized bookmark. I see myself as the reader in the picture with that curly hair and also drowning with books around me. "So many books, so little time," which I often say when I am so swamp with books that I want to finish them every single day just to make time.
Thank you, Jubly-Umph for these wonderful pieces!
