We have two good friends who are sisters who make famous jewelry. Most of their most famous pieces are used in movies. Need a necklace from the court of Louis XIV? Just call Ann and Karen Mitchel, known in the jewelry business as Ankara. They are seen quite often in the public broadcasting channel in Los Angeles, KCET. They demonstrate everything from making a simple pair of earrings, to a elaborate necklace made of resin plastic to resemble the diamonds and gold of a royal court of the seventeenth century.
Besides being the movie capitol of the world, Los Angeles is also home to major educational video's, quite often done by some of the most famous people in the world of the movies. Their desire to improve the quality of education and art on the air waves lead them to use millions of dollars of their own money to produce original shows geared to children and adults alike. Quite often, they do this quietly and anonymously.
Ann and Karen are often called into these projects to create the jewelry and glamour of a particular historical period. This is a shot of a pile of artists chalk, as well as bits of the resin plastic they use to create jewelry pieces that mimic original works of art that are priceless pieces of history.
This is a still life of found objects. No attempt to arrange them into a composition was made. The only modification from reality is a bit of diffusion to draw the eye into the center of the composition.
