Do you use a sketchbook?
I found my sketchbook I kept in my very first jewelry class and was really taken by how much my ideas took shape over the pages. I thought I would share some from the very first project from my metals class took shape.
Here is an image of the finished pendant. I'm still not good at tube rivets! Finished piece: Copper, Nickel, Cardboard, Laser Printed Acetate, Feather, Stamping, and Texturing.
After reminiscing through this old sketchbook, I'm excited to begin trying more mock ups and design sketches as I work on a piece.
Do you keep a sketchbook of your jewelry ideas? Do you sketch items out or make models to avoid potential design flaws? I'd love to hear if you do!
