[JEWELRY]

Back in 2008, while thinking about creating sculptures based upon my sold paintings, Jason also began to entertain the idea of turning those sculptures into jewelry — a type of "wearable art."

My painting, Buddha, generated substantial interest when I shared it online. Because of the palpable enthusiasm, I decided to use Buddah as the first subject for my jewelry line.

Design #1

The first iteration was a sterling silver, square framed pendant necklace. This rendition of Buddha used the exact same line work as the original painting.

Design #2

The second piece evolved to remove the background completely. Jason thought it might be interesting to free the image from its frame and create a stand alone version of the painting’s image.

Packaging

As a finishing touch, Jason wanted to create a unique box to present the Buddha pendant necklace in. He was able to source packaging for the jewelry that would allow it to be displayed beautifully, while doubling as a picture frame to hold an included miniature, signed print of the original Buddha painting.

Alongside Buddha, JASON OLIVA [JEWELRY] offers Framed and Cut-Out Pendants in Sterling Silver, Rose, Black Rhodium and 18k White Gold in the following designs: AstronautDragon, Lion, Gorilla, Dragonfly, Octopus, Rose, and Stripey Horse. All current designs are available through Etsy.

[COLORING BOOK]

In the same way that wall art can create a calming effect, Jason felt that a coloring book can be equally as therapeutic. Jason created An A to Z Coloring Book for Everyone, showcasing 26 of his most popular paintings.
