we know that there are elements of design - color, texture, shape - & principles - balance, unity, scale - (to name a few)...
but do you consider the light?
in your work itself?
in your photography?
everything you work with has qualities of translucency or opacity - explore them... the strength and solidness of metals and clay, the delicacy of gems, glass and resin... you can find the balance...
designing from the gut is a wonderful thing - your hands dance across different bits and bobs... but being aware of your choices and thinking about what they mean adds a dimension of intentionality to your work
and this can take it to another level completely -
