Mystery Jewel

As a mystery novel/tv show fan I enjoy comparing the two classic varieties of the suspenseful "whodunits" with each other; murders and jewel heists. Occasionally there will be a delightful combination of both in the same story, entertaining on several levels. The (fully imaginary) jewel choker painted here for this 20 minute sketch was likely inspired by one of these grand, Deco-era mystery tales. Pen and watercolor, 5" x 8".
