Jenador

Jenador

Jenador is an Australian gem opal artisan who has created a unique technique for embedding the opal design in the etched black glass. Having spent her childhood in the intractable opal fields of Australia, Jenador learned to mine opals and became involved in the rare art of gem opal pictures.This technique involves a refined process of creating an outline of an image by affixing gem opals onto a solid black glass background. After much complicated experimentation over the past 30 years, Jenador has perfected the formula, meticulously selecting each gem for its brilliance and stunning lustre.

The largest known works of this type, Jenador depicts a variety of subject matter. She has participated in numerous exhibitions in Australia and abroad. She now works on her masterpieces from a studio in Bendigo, VIC, through carefully selecting Australian gem opals for their brilliance and colour and then setting them to best advantage to highlight their truly wonderful features in the finished artwork.To have a better understanding of Jenador Gem Opal Art, you can access a short video on http://www.gemopalart.com/DVD.htm
