While Walt Disney is a household name, at the heart of his finest work were countless unsung artists and animators; one of the most legendary among them was Mary Blair. With a background in watercolour and fine arts, Blair’s use of bold shapes would go on to cement her reputation as one of the most influential artists in the Disney story.
Natural Australian sapphires are known for having a deep inky colouring. They are also known to be quite a hardy stone, second to diamond, and equal with ruby. Australian sapphires have really only been available for the past 150 years, being originally found in both Queensland and New South Wales in the early 1850's.
